From my short life time of 35 years the city of Shanghai went from having no skyline to one of the worlds best !

The Shanghai Tower is DEFINATELY the best supertall under construction and Lujiazui is SURELY the most elegant financial district in the world!!!!

Please don't repost the same picture on the same page, especially one so huge. It's really obnoxious. Thanks.

Great news. We should open a thread for this one as soon as we have any kind of official press release or something.

Did you see stuff about any other project? Gensler has tons of skyscraper projects on going in China including several supertalls. Huge pity their website is probably the worst among first tier skyscraper designers. Excepting Shanghai Tower, I think they have no info about any on going project.
