It is, but the Shanhai tower is by far the best of the 4

All four are great project and I love it I hope these projects won´t be stopped for many years due to the world crisis as Shanghai trade center. Has the erection of Shanghai tower advanced in some way? Are here some new photos?

Does anyone know if the Shanghai tower, especially the top floors, will be accessible for general public/tourists? I hope it will also work as a lookout tower and will become Shanghai´s Eiffel tower

When shall the upper Shanghai World Financial Centre observation deck, at 474 m, look up to Shanghai Tower core?
How high is the highest public observation deck of Jin Mao tower?

If the economics in Shanghai are the same as anywhere else (I'm sure they are) they'll certainly set aside some space at the top for observation. Have a read of this.

That's hardly a stretch and highly believable considering China is building empty ghost cities to enable them to lie about their GDP along with everything else they lie about, fabricate and manipulate. Ahh the many freedoms of communism. Freedoms for the only government that is.

Did you know that the members of the CCP also eat babies for dinner every day? They also use human bones in the construction of those skyscrapers to make them stronger

I guess all the crowds of people getting off the Metro at Lujiazui every morning are just actors too, right?

This has gotten to the point that I don't have to go to Pudong to see the progress anymore. You can see this building from well within Puxi.
