Thanks for the close up pictures! Quick tip: when you use the Flickr-share menu, you don't need IMG-tags on SkyscraperCity! And you can select a bigger size, up to 1024x768

323 m is still lower not only than the top of Jin Mao at 370 m, but the public observatory of Jin Mao at 340 m.

Are there any recent pictures of Shanghai Tower looking down from the upper observatory of Jin Mao?
