When you grow up and if you ever become an Architect, which i doubt, you will realize the importance of sustainability and responsible design. Something that China in particular seems to have little concept of, in relation to supertalls and infrastructure.
If we need skyscrapers so bad then why not make them more lean and refined, (which is all achievable) not bulky, massively over engineered hulks, designed by paranoid architects and engineers with 9/11 still fresh in their minds.
It is beginning to happen, just not so much in China.
If you can't see the sense in that then you've no hope in Architecture.
It doesn't look that bulky at all, for that height it needs some girth to make it look great as well as probably saftey, Imagine 432 park avenue at 2100 ft, then I believe it would definitely need more Girth.. I'm not seeing a problem with the bulkiness at all,, if you could (i'm not being rude) but why do you see it as bulky?


Alos ZZ11 did cornholdshack mean Taipei 101, cause there's no taibei tower I've ever heard of that.

It all depends on demand. Vacancy rates of SWFC reached a low of 10% in Q1 2011. (Source:http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-0...-shanghai.html)
At the time, it was one of the most expensive places to rent.

Based on this, I assume Shanghai tower will have no problem finding tenants. A very large number of Fortune 500 companies want good exposure in this city. They definitely have the money for it.

Taibei is the transliteration of the pronunciation in Mandarin (and people speaking it in the Mainland - or, outside of Taiwan
"Pei" might be a phonetic remnant of the old Wade-Giles system, which is still employed in Taiwan to translate Mandarin (i.e. why in most of the Mainland you'll see "Xiao," but in HK or Taiwan, you'll see "Hsiao.") I dislike Wade-Giles solely because it confuses non-Native speakers (i.e. Peking is meant to still be pronounced Beijing -it's just a phonetic system similar to what you find in the dictionary).

You would think it would be easier to install the interior glass first....

If you look at the concrete core it seems to me i can see the mechanical floors for the next belt trust, which is at arround 480m if i'm not wrong.
Hard to tell with no new site photos from the cranes.

In any case, in the next few weeks it will be 500m+.

My guess is that wind and structural loading factors into the decision to enclose the outer facade first. It would block the wind from swirling into the building.

Nice update comet the cat, some angles look like SWFC is now shorter, but then again others looks like ST is a few feet (meters) shorter discounting the cranes... But my God this will probably be the most close we ever see them, It's like SWFC is 1614 ft (492m), ST has gotta be within 10 feet Higher or lower (2meter's) perhaps. Wish we had someone who knew exactley.. This is the closest I believe the 2 have been and if I had to bet I think it would be a pick em.
