Is there anyone having clues/info/news about underground floors arrangement?
All that I know is that levels B1-B2 (the upper ones) will be for conferences and will also grant the access to the superfast elevators (at B2 level) to the observatory, and levels B3-4-5 should be parking garages.
Also, underground and podium levels will have a their own elevators system (built outside the tower's core), but, apart this, the underground arrangement is still a mistery to me (and I guess to the mostpart of us)....

So to answer your question, currently, the tallest freestanding structures in Shanghai go:

1. SWFC
2. OPT
3. Jin Mao
4. ST, although ST will become number 3 here within a couple weeks.
I think ST is taller than Jin Mao since at least 3 weeks....

It looks like construction of the podium has started.

I'm sure they were saying that about New York in 1930.

Shanghai will reach a plateau and stay that way too.
