Probably the core reached its full height (maybe I am wrong, but I think so.)

I love this building but have to ask...

Guys and gals, First I LOVE THIS BUILDING and the rest of the supertalls under construction in China. This building in particular is extraordinary.

However, could we be seeing the beginnings of a speculative commercial real estate bubble? In every major city in China we have multiple supertall towers going up that need to be filled up. Even a economy that is growing at the 7-8% range in China can only absorb so much office space before a correction occurs. If growth slows by say half China's cities could see supertalls half filled or empty in the same way American cities experienced after the commercial real estate bust in the 80's.

Dubai has definitely slowed their crazy construction boom --- more taking a deep breath than anything after such a frenzy.

As far as skyscrapers go for us nerds China is in a class of it's own right now. Shanghai Tower is one for the record books and I can see it starting a trend in that kind of unique architecture.

one bad thing with a triangle of supertalls is that from nearly every angle one building is blocked by the other
