Hahahaha, SO appropriate that your name is Calvin Coolidge. Please do your part to reduce climate change and jump off a tall building.

Im looking forward to those brands that represent high-end fashion but are not in IFC for example YSL, McQueen and Givenchy.
I would prefer if it had something like a restaurant. Which is really lacking in Ljz. I don't need anymore luxury stores, just go to HK and wait in line on Canton road. There is not one decently priced Chinese restaurant in the entire LJZ. What the hell. I can get Chinese food easier in Tampa at lunch time than I can in LJZ. Pathetic. Put a Chinese restaurant on the street!!!! When I worked at Jin Mao, eating lunch was a nightmere. It was either the slop at the cafeteria at jin mao. Or Baoyu and truffle soup at a hotel. There is nothing convenient and moderately priced anywhere within walking distance. Don't give me that "international" BS either. Central in HK has tons of options and restaurants, and HK is more international now than Shanghai will be in 50 years.

Maybe the various sky lobbies/atria will have more reasonably priced fare as the goal is to keep workers in the building and not consuming time and energy going out for lunch. When you have to ride 121 floors down to get outside, you spend 30 minutes just riding elevators up and down.

Because you guys in those buildings are suppose to be gold collar supermen who only need Starbucks to get through the day! Jokes aside, do they allow lunch boxes to be delivered to the offices? I know office buildings in Puxi do.

That's why the elevators are going lightning speed.

There are quite a lot of Chinese restaurants in Lujiazui? Those in Superbrand Mall are quite decently price i think, while the ones in IFC are a bit more expensive. Most of the restaurants have special "lunch meals" about 50-100RMB, i would imagine with some lunch allowance, this can be easily afforded by those people working in the area. There are also a lot of cafeterias beneath the offices, they are very cheap and the food taste decent.

I think it varies depending on the office. When i interned in IFC, we had to use swipe cards to access the elevator room. I havent even seen a postman in the elevator during the time i interned in IFC.

Agreed, there are also some Chinese fast restaurants near Mcdonalds near the metro station that are quite cheap.

Man, you must be kidding. Chinese food or any type of food in Tampa is just horrible. How could you compare what Tampa can offer in terms of food to what you can get in Shanghai? Diversity and taste of food in these two cities are light years apart with Shanghai on the better end.

Sketchy and unproven claims? Are you insane? The existence of anthropogenic climate change is not disputable you lunatic! The only detractors are nutjob conservative psycopaths doing the oil and gas industry's bidding.

Take off the tinfoil hat. Are you seriously going to assert that tens of thousands of scientists are in some big conspiracy to do the bidding of unnamed politicians to get funding? That is an absolute joke.
