yes, i totally agree.

People shouldn't care about the height and status, they should just accept that this is the project and appreciate it.
You can't pretend that these sorts of issues are irrelevant to skyscraper construction; they're not built in a bubble. If this type of discussion happens more in threads about Chinese construction projects, I think it just shows how fascinated people are by the place.

If status and prestige had nothing to do with it they could have easily fitted the total floor space here in a 300m tall tower. But I agree that it doesn't really matter if this tower was a couple meter higher. The prestige isn't directed at specific countries but at the whole world. And it's not like there will never be a higher tower then this in Shanghai. The city now only has 1/3 of the A & A+ office space compared to Tokyo. In other words there's still enough room for growth in Shanghai's office market, especially with it's ambitions to become the financial capital of Asia. Because of the prestige involved we will see more of these kind of mega tall high quality towers like this one in Shanghai in the years to come.

maybe you should post this to gaoloumi.com not here -___-

the construction worker said the core has now changed to 125F from the old 121F plan.

Dunno what they are up to.. maybe a change in height is possible.

But I thought maybe they are just too lazy to change the core shape of the last four floor.

I‘d like to translate it:

A skyreach pillar pierces into the sky, That's Shanghai Tower.
Its curvature is so graceful, oh my god!
Heavy fog covers the Pudong skyline in early spring, so sexy!
And the brightness from heaven lightens the whole city at night, what a poem!
