Because of Burj Khalifa's long spire,I think ST looks taller than BK.

Sorry!

BK is thinner after 300m. ST is more massive.

It looks amazing. Shanghai Tower is amazing on its own. Certainly one of the best skyscraper designs ever... however once accompanied by SWFC and Jin Mao, which are by all means also in the leagues of their own, the whole thing just starts to look something on a wholly different level. I say let's face it, this is going to be THE most striking and fascinating place in the world to do with skyscrapers...
