These are the real numbers here:
Shanghai: 10,000
Hong Kong: 10,000
New York: 1,000

I'm not even joking

New York is full of low square concrete/brick looking buildings from the early 20th century. It's now at the bottom of the list.

Now, we can get back to talking about ST since these are officially the real numbers.

I would ask you for a source, but this post is so idiotic it doesn't even warrant mention.

Surely nobody on SkyscraperCity believes that New York or Toronto would have more highrises than a city like Shanghai?

As first, would be helpful to see to which rendering you refer to.
Anyway, the cladding does twist. Each horizontal row of windows rotates 1 degree clockwise each 4,5 meters up (i.e. each floor), respect to the immediately lower level. At mech floors the rotation is 1,24-1,25 degrees, as these floors are higher than ordinary ones.
Also, each row is scaled down (by decimals) respect to the immediately lower one.
All of this gives to the eye the twisting effect that, to be honest, I really cannot understand why you cannot catch (if I got you right).
To me, such an effect is evident since now, with only two sections cladded, but of course it will appear more evident as far as the cladding progresses up.

There's no cladding here (it's my model still U/C), but is this enough to allow you to get the twist anyway (4 sections out of 8)?
I don't recall ever seing those little S pattens about 2/3 of the way up?

Wow, great progress - the next belt truss levels have been started, as you can see in those newest photos; plus also the cranes will be jumping soon.

You should send these pictures to emporis or wikipedia and ask them why
their data is so much off the target!

Wikipedia would just tell you to get off your lazy ass and update the data yourself.

Emporis only uses official and confirmed data, no chance they add estimated numbers. I know a guy who's working for emporis, he told me a few things about adding new data.

Wikipedia is not a reliable source of information. Everyone can change the information of an article.
