Oh, sorry for the confusion.
It's on the riverfront; the side facing Hongkou (a little bit to the right in the 2nd photo below), which is much more peaceful an area to walk in if you want to enjoy the river and not crowds. There's some old buildings and warehouses that they refurbished along with the developments there. That old warehouse below is where I took that panorama from. There's a nice grassy area where I used to go sit and sketch/read/picnic (31.246639,121.510156 on google maps). If you look closely, you can see the cranes on the ST site peeking up between SWFC and Jin Mao.



It's actually not that far away, it's on the other side of Pudong Ave. about 2km away from The Trio
I was just posting it because your comment made me remember it

I was shocked when I realized how much of that area was still quite empty. I guess that's where they're envisioning the eastward expansion of Lujiazui.



I think there's nothing proposed for that plot tbh. I think it'll be a green space until/if they decide to put something there. I don't know if they're planning another supertall in the area in the near future. Anyone know if they are?

The green netting inside pretty much indicates that internal cladding will start.

The empty plot in the pic by lowai is supposed to be the last phase of the nearby residential development. Someone posted a render earlier and it looked at least 280m tall.

Excellent height, excellent architecture.
Just magnificent.

Not just this building, Shanghai could really become the new brightest jewel in all of East Asia or perhaps in the World. I hope it makes great contributions to the humanity once it reaches the point as mighty cities like Tokyo and New York did

Wow incredible, looks like the only place you can look out from the outter cladding, is on top of the trusses,, Cannot wait to see inner cladding,, I hope to hell it has a greenish tint,, just saw so many renders, with a Greenish tint.. IT LOOKED GREAT. Shanghai Tower is just on pace to be the Best of our Generation

Yup, they will live just as I have in my little commie block prisonesque concrete building and cubicle for the last three years.

In all that open space though, climate control will be difficult with all that solar energy, temperature gradient, and humidity.

It would be a dream come true to work in this building.

All about China’s craze over giant skyscrapers
Luc Citrinot - 05 September 2012, 10:24

http://www.traveldailynews.asia/news...o-s-craze-over

The craze for the tallest buildings in China will take place between Shanghai and Shenzhen. Shanghai is looking now at getting in 2014 its Shanghai Tower. Started in 2008, the construction faced delays due to technical problems. It should reach a height of 400 meter at the end of the year before reaching its final height of 632 meters next year. It will be the world’s second highest building only surpassed by the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Unfortunately for its owners, the tower will only be the tallest of China for just a year time once the Pingan IFC Tower in Shenzhen has been completed. The latter will reach the sky at 648 meter and is the work of another famed world architect cabinet Kohn Pedersen Fox.

Craze, arrogance or a bit of both? The Xiaoxiang Morning Post in Changsha, the capital of central China's Hunan Province –and a rather unknown city for most travellers- will built the world’s tallest building. Proposed by the Yuanda Group, Sky City would be a 220-storey building, with a height of 838 meters, ten meters higher than Burj Khalifa. More amazing, Yuanda Group declares that the construction will take less than a year –some reports indicate two months, some other seven months. It took for the Burj Khalifa six years to be completed and four years for Taiwan’s Taipei 101, formerly the world’s highest construction. Mission impossible for Changsha ? Most probably...

Figures released by skyscraper-observing website motiancity.com show that as of March 2011, Mainland China had built 350 skyscrapers higher than 152 meters, outstripping the number in the United States. The country is currently adding another 287 high-rises over the next three to four years.

Such a fever will also create problems of environmental sustainability, safety issues on construction –probably the case of the Changsha project- security issues in case of problem –such as a fire for example. And not to mention all the problems of oversupply in the market with the necessity to fill up all new offices, apartments and hotel rooms which are due to inundate the market.

Far of the legendary Asian wisdom in business, China’s speculative building boom is going unabated to cheer up some egos. Beware of Prometheus' myth...

How will they cover up the white frame that holds up the external cladding?
