Really? I think the 3 complement eachother amazingly.

This and the new WTC will be my two favorite supertall clusters on earth.

These three buildings are going to be an iconic in Shanghai. They represent past, present, and future.

There is something about this city that just gives me the urge to pack my bags and move there permanently. I guess it's the.....SKYLINE!

Visiting again in July. I may in fact never go home.

I love this tower, both inside and outside, and of course the excellent height.
