A ~2200 ft tall building? Wow. That's good news.

670m is too much to fit well with Jin Mao and SWFC... I hope they will go with the 580m version.

that sucks. so that means they're going for the taller building over harmoniously proportionate, aesthetically building?

670m is a terrible idea. Its too tall and would be an eyesore no matter how great the design is because it sticks up like an erect *****. It will also rob Jin Mao and SWFC of their impressiveness because instead of complementing them, it overpowers them.

Let Dubai build all those high, tacky, tall-for-the-sake-of-prestige projects. Shanghai needs aesthetics over height. I mean look at Shinjuku. Not a single supertall but still one of the most beautiful CBD's in the world. Shinjuku should be a model for Pudong.

Come on, not too tall. Just 178m taller than SWFC. Put the Citigroup Tower on SWFC's roof and you get 672m

regarding the italian newspaper article, we only have one person who can read italian who's posted in the last few days and the rest of us are relying on google translator which is at best basic. one word out of context and the article could go from: 'SOM are in the running' to 'SOM win the design'. all senses point to the former for numerous reasons.

No, the article says "the project for the new tower is work of SOM". And it's totally clear they're saying it's the approved design.
To me it's also paramount the article's sources are random google searches.
