Looks like panic over lots of activity for about 30 minutes then they all left. Maybe a drill?

Will try and find out.

@宣克炅
【又是虚惊 上海中心烟雾系雾气】之前许多微友私信询问我:为何上海中心顶部有烟雾,且多辆消防车赶赴现场,是否发生火灾。刚向公安、消防核实,系云雾,并非烟雾。消防因接到多位热心市民报警,到场备勤,随后悄然离开现场。各位安心。此类乌龙在陆家嘴超高建筑群已发生多次。

THANK GOD. ITS ACTUALLY CLOUD THAT LOOKS LIKE SMOKE COMING OUT FROM ST..

My heart missed a beat when I've seen the 'fire' ....... fortunately it was a misunderstanding only (in hindsight, a funny misunderstanding, too).

Look below the banner at the blue strip running across the screen. Go to the far left of it and click "User CP." It'll show all the threads you have posted on where someone has replied or posted something new.

I get the feeling that nobody has ever bothered to actually get the heights for all of these buildings, categorize them, and add them all up. It would be a massive job to do so. I've seen similar aerial photos of Shanghai which also appears to have high rises that go on for miles so I wonder if the same thing is going on here. In other words, I suspect that many of these websites are just listing the most prominent buildings in these cities that have already been compiled in a list while leaving thousands of them uncounted because it would simply be too big of a job to do. Just a thought.
I am from São Paulo and yes, in SP have so many building, but i don't know if we have more high rise buildings than any city in the world. Probably not. And the North of Brazil... They build so buildings, i don't know how much but yes.

Whatever, back to Shanghai.
