Does't this project also entail the creation of a new metro station between SWFC, Jin Mao, and ST? Or am I mistaken?

That doesn't seem very likely to me since it's already just 5 min walking from a metro station. But I'm not sure. Maybe they want to increase capacity... The metro is already incredible crowded on rush hour. Imagine how many more people the metro needs to transport when Shanghai Tower is fully occupied.

No plans for a new subway station here. Did read somewhere that Lujiazui station would be expanded

i am really interested in what the cladding will look on the whole building. look thru glass is just so hard to imagine and the renders do not really show the reality i think.

Once this one is built I wonder if Shanghai will launch some other major CBD where the city may reach new heights.

if shanghai decides to go the tianjin / shenzhen road and build quite far outside of the city i could imagine the new cbd heading further towards suzhou for a future merging of several infrastructural parts, maybe metro at one point. if they decide to stay within the city, doesn't the area near white magnolia plaza still have several plots to offer?

I think after this building is complete Shanghai will have a very completed feel, unlike most other major Chinese cities which seem like works in progress. There are few other major projects in the pipeline, a lot of renovation work will have been completed such as with the bund, a lot of construction work wrapped up, it will mark a real coming of age for the city. It will be a great time for me to hopefully make my first visit to Shanghai.

We've seen concept renders for tiny skyscraper masterplans in the last years for so many areas. Xuhui, Pujiang, Lujiazui Eastward, Hongqiao, Yangpu, Huangpu Redevelopment... Also around 2010 they announced that Putuo would grow a large scale CBD but they never released any image for that one. Even so all of those master projects are so ambiguous, I don't know what to think.

They should try further improve Pudong and see what happens. Aren't there expansions on the Pudong CBD as well?

How is this project illuminated at night? Will there be LEDs applied to the skin? Behind the glass? Does anybody know?

Maybe, someone has already shared this video. But I think it's interesting to briefly look on the design technology.

Ships that run through Huangpu river are so ugly. I actually dont see how these ships are still running after 10 years, i have been seeing these ships ever since i was born. The ships are so 1990s and they just dont fit with the modern skyline in the background. That picture would have looked SO much better without the stupid boat.

Hi Cul.

The highest columns are above level 73. The F/F of level 73 is 342.25 meters, so approx. 344 meters. FYI, the top crane supports are at level 68 - just above what will be the fifth belt truss (levels 66 and 67).
