Still don't like the name "Shanghai Tower". Anything else expectable to come up? At least a nickname?

Yeah, that's right. I guess this is the reason why they chose the "incorrect" translation for Shanghai Tower. The English name "Shanghai Center" was already taken, simple as that.

This building used to be referred to as "Shanghai Center" in English though. I didn't know another tower had another to do with it. :p
