It doesn't look bad, but I have been annoyed from the beginning that it overshadows both Jin Mao and SIFC, that in my opinion are more beautiful then Shanghai Super Tower. It would look better if built some blocks further away from the other supertalls on Pudong.

People said similar things about SWFC blocking the view of Jin Mao when it was being built. And look at them now, both fit together so nicely and elegant like two brothers. Soon they will have a third brother.

I appreciate the Shanghai Tower and I like the SWFC. But I'm completely in love with Jin Mao. It doesn't matter to me that it's to going to be the shortest of the "3 giants", it still remains the most beautiful tower in Shanghai and one of the most elegant towers in the world.

Nice progress btw, it's really catching up to 1WTC now.

On the 4th pic you can see the construction become a bit smaller upwars.

That core is taken too much space of the floor plate!

The steel structure will rise to 632m wrapped around a 565.6 metre tall central concrete core. In total it will have 127 stories, a gross internal area of 558,806 square metres with interior space will be given over to offices, a luxury hotel and retail.

over 60 footballfields of floorspace sounds a lot to me

I can't believe how tall this one is already. And it still has a long way to go!

Nice progress on the little wall at the street. xD

The previous truss belt was done in a particularly short time. This one is taking a little longer indeed.

Are there any already completed towers with an inner glass facade, followed by empty space/greenspace, followed by another layer of glass curtain just like this tower? Because I'm really curious how such a tower would look like when it is reflecting direct sunlight in real life (I don't know how accurate the existing renders of ST really are in this regard).
