Unfortunately it doesn't tell anything about how many floor there will be. In fact its certain that ShanghaiCenter will have more than 100 floors.
Is that an obligation to tell you how many floors?

You don't need to be rude. People (at least I) wonder how many floors there will be. Please don't go offtopic with these pointless posts.

What d'you mean? I don't remember towers taller than 300 meters in Puxi, the tallest is about 280 meters.

Have a look at the first page before asking these kind of questions.

I like them both, Fosters design is IMHO an improvement on the older Japanese millenium tower adding more grace and style to the lattice plus has a hint of art deco(without being cheesey) that suits Shanghai well.

There are only two supertalls planned - Wheelock Square (which is under construction and is just under 300m tall) and Xujiahui Centre (the final design is being worked on now, the developer is in the final design stages, it is likely to be around 320m tall and the stacking plan i've seen shows three towers sitting above a huge retail mall, possibly joined but with individual lift cores. the site is currently not ready for construction as there are two new metro lines that will intersect there. these are currently being finished and the site should be ready for general construction soon.).

In Puxi there is very little land left for office development and the majority of sites already have projects decided for them. If there is to be another supertall it will be unlikely in one of the existing cbds, I would be keeping my eyes on the world expo site, which will have a huge amount of land available after the expo in 2010 as well as the supporting area to the south of the expo site which is called sanlin functional zone.

ROFL!
You are definitely right with that.

I wonder if there are any renders for the interior? I would love to see one especially on the Main Floor.

Don't you still think it's just similar?? Of course we all see that its face is curved but the basic idea isn't a lot different...
