In some renders the glass is blue and in some other renders it's green. Do you know what color it will be?

Larger version, copyright Ferrari, via Autoblog.com

Note the poorly photoshopped skyline to the left.

^Because ST is so awesome...

No seriously I think that elementary school student Ferrari hired to do the photoshop simply missed the ST under construction.

What are you talking about? Shanghai Tower is situated in Pudong, wouldn't you consider that a name? And the other side of the river is called Puxi, as far as we're talking about the central district.
