Since I'm no computer whiz, I'm not sure how to post a link,, but check out on you-tube (A Vertical City: Shanghai's Transformation.. The only thing troubling,, one of the main architect's claims, (towards the end),, that after this bldg is complete, he'll try to take on a much SLOWER paced project,, One that the USA has to offer.. MUCH SLOWER???? Why is that?

I watched the video and the guy that says that about wanting to work on a slower pace project, means that the current work (on Shanghai Tower) must be seriously high intensity work everyday with strict targets. He probably just said it, but meaning something a little less demanding in general, less stress.

Amazing shots!

Forgive me if anyone asked this before but I can't find it on this thread. When will it top out and open to the public? I am thinking about going to Shanghai once this beautiful tower completes.

It will be completed 2014 and "partially opened for the public" in 2013 (probably just the mall in the lower floors of the tower).
