A quick google search came up with this:

The venture with Shanghai Tower Development Co. will develop the 258-room Shanghai Tower J-Hotel, which will occupy the 84th to the 110th floors of the 121-story building, said a Jin Jiang filing to the Hong Kong exchange yesterday. The 632- meter Shanghai Tower in the Pudong business hub is set to be the world’s second-tallest building when it’s completed in 2014.

It's not a valid comment. The river has this brown color because of the sediment it carries with her. This obviously does not mean the river is dirty, it's just how nature works. Althought the river is probably somewhat polluted (heavy industries, dumping etc) this is not visible in this pic. Sorry for bringing this up, I know it's rather off-topic, but I think people should know

Meanwhile, keep the updates flowing

Chinese skyscrapers like Jin Mao are more of a revisit to the ancient pagoda style of architecture in Asia.
You can still find some art deco or other European style architecture in the Bund.

The pollutants do contribute to the river's ugly brown color. Saying that the sediments do the job solely on their own is not right.

And I wasn't so much referring to the river but Shanghai's smog. It's a very unique skyline hampered by relatively poor visibility from far away to capture the details.

Have a look at Brisbane's (Aus) river, it's brown and I can assure you it's not from pollution it's purely natural fast flowing water. I doubt Shanghai's is from pollution either.

Come to Melbourne and take a good look at our Yarra River flowing past our CBD. I've been told its name is derived from being an "upside down" river where high levels of unsettled sediments is the sole reason for its murky/ugly brown colour.

So saying that sediments do the job solely on their own... is actually right.

He isn't claiming the water is pollution free, he is claiming (and I concur) that the colour of the water is due to loess sediment.

Chinese rivers look like this no matter how far upstream you go and how remote you get. Unless you are looking at a small alpine creek, rivers in China get muddy brown once they get to the first valley floor.

It's the soil. Blame the last ice age.

Some debate over whether they will put on the steel superstructure and/or the crown.

Many think the top floors, concrete core, mechanical but not the crown by July.

Given the cladding, I am guessing that the crown cannot be installed until the cladding reaches the top floors first.
