A photo from an upcoming movie, you can see Shanghai Tower just a little in the background.

Great shot! Is this the end of the crane jumps, or will there be one more? It looks like the cranes are due for their last jump...

When I look at this photo, I see SWFC, building with the highest OB deck in the world, and then ST. That's mindboggling.

You serious? I thought that ST's Obs deck was going to be just before the "crown"? Or are you just commenting on the perspective of that picture? If that's the case I can see what you mean. This bldg is incredible, just look at that core, then to think the Spire/Crown or whatever it's called, is going to take it to about 632, that's just AWESOME. For Americans 2074ft, just so hard to fathom, how humans can build something on this scale.

I was saying look at how much taller ST looks than SWFC (the building with the world's highest OB deck) in the picture.

He was just saying how impressed he was that Shanghai Tower is now taller than the building with (for now) the highest observation deck in the world

Why would it be weird? Because it's a Taiwanese company? A lot of Taiwanese companies have offices in Chinese cities.
