Yes, but that's not the one by Gensler but KPF's.

Hey Zorg, what project were you referring to as "the sword"?

This one, it is the one by Foster I think, not sure. Supposed to be 744m tall.

Wasn't there a similar one proposed by a Chinese atelier? BTW, it would make more sense if at least one of Shanghai biggies was designed in China.

Haha thats actually a pretty brilliant idea to restore the 'aesthetic balance'. I mean they are clearing up all those commieblocks behind Lujiazui right? So wouldn't a 580m building not be out of the question?

I'm not sure. According to SSP, this one is Foster's:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...0xJZ9QeeTM.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...1160115753.jpg


And "the sword" is by SIADR instead (Shanghai based studio). But according to ss.cn, the sword was designed by Foster. I don't know what to think since Foster's website doesn't show anyone. This is a huge mess, we can't even identify most proposals. And we only know the official height of SOM's.

as much as i'd like to keep three supertalls in sync i'd love to see how high they can really go eventually they'll build more and more supertalls as there is so much potential for growth especially with commieblocks in the vicinity

they haven't exactly decided the winning design for the tower as of the moment and really just preparing the site up for construction to begin its just that it says in the title 580m 118floors is for the SOM design tower which is one of the proposals which is not bad at all but in my opinion i just hope its a lot taller than that!
