A typical high rise apartment building built in the late 90s and early 2000s has about 25 floors, eight units per floor, 1000ft^2/90m^2 per unit, housing a three member family. Most newer high rises are taller but have less units due to increasing unit sizes. People without Shanghai Huko are not counted in the population, but they do live in those high rises, sometimes several people rent together, a lot of wealthier people bought two or three units to rent out also to ride the real estate bubble hoping to turn a profit. Note that a large number of high rises and skyscrapers are office towers and hotels.

Does Shanghai ever publish data as to the area and number of existing and new built apartments and offices?

In 2003 the govt relaxed the strict hukou system which made it illegal for people to settle in certain cities, and for the first time accepted 'illegal' residents into data, and began providing services for them. The annual population increase rose threefold, from over a million to over 3 million as newcomers flooded in. Beijing saw a similar increase:

IN effect the city councils faced a ginormous headache, providing housing and services for 10,000 newcomers a day at the height of the influx, while also for 3 million illegal residents that had already been living there for years.

Maybe it is because of the strong wind today, because I saw the cranes moving a few days ago. Chinese NY finished last Saturday, although monday there is still the lantern festival. I guess after the Lantarn festival it will go to full speed again. Many other projects in town are also still quiet.

expect the first 15 days after Chinese New Year to be quiet. Anything after that, then they are seriously wasting time

I love how I live in Shanghai and still have to look on this site to check the progress of the Shanghai Tower. However, seems like as it gets taller, I will be seeing it here in Xuhui district in a few months.

I'm looking forward to seeing it.

oh no..... Comments like this is surely going to irritate Jay (the new 'Onn')

Keep it to Shanghai Tower only and not China

Don't like how Jin Mao is such a small tower compared to ST. Jin Mao has so much more detail and class

Yepp. But only the people who have stand there will agree with you. Other will value the height much more. Design counts when you see it in person. And at that point Jin Mao rules.

From what I've heard, pictures can't do Jin Mao justice in terms of capturing the intricate detail of the design and cladding. Is this true?

Yeah, Jin Mao has a very unique and beautiful cladding, which is much more impressive to see in person. Definetely the most beautiful building in Shanghai.
