I don't like the design of that. They better change it to something that is similar to the tower.

Many are amazed of Lujiazui's rapid change, but have a look at Puxi which was essentially flat in the 80s - today it is home to more skyscrapers than anywhere else on the planet. Pudong is seriously a fraction of that.

Staff, Puxi is much larger than Pudong in terms of the developed territory.
And I wouldn't call it "home to more skyscrapers than anywhere on the planet". Hongkong beats it up easily.

Er, Puxi was essentially flat (as in, it had almost no highrises) in the 80s. Now it probably has more than any other city on the planet-- probably including Hong Kong. In any case, Hong Kong doesn't "beat it up easily". What a ridiculous statement.

Somebody correct me, in summary the shanghai center was 632 metres then changed to somewhere above 550 meters and now back to 632 metres again?

I confirm there are many now, but it's not "on the planet" that's what I wanted to precise.
Just count the towers and point out there height. You'll see you're mistaken.
