Yes.

That's why they should build taller buildings to offset the shrinkages .

Does anybody has the latest plans on these walkways? It feels so good walking on them, standing just a little higher than normal, between al the enormous skyscrapers. It seems we can walk from the metro station all the way to SWFC over these walkways in the future.
Yes, it is currently under construction and I see progress almost every day.

In a couple of weeks it might be tall enough to be classified as a megatall

Okay, now THAT is impressive.
I think being in Shanghai spoiled me to the point that now, when I simply see photos of it, I can't really put it in context (I was last there in 2011, when it was a quarter of the size)...

Now I remember how imposing it really is.
Here's to hoping the lighting will be just as magnificent.
It'd be wonderful if they lit it from between the inner and outer cladding, to give it an incandescent glow.

That's what they plan to:



But it may change

I just realised something regarding the extremely dwarfed view of Jin Mao! If Jin Mao tower walks past up the Shanghai tower, it'd kind of gain elevation (of course only in the picture) and it'd not look so dwarfed as it seems now...
