Too bad they didnt plan this thing to spiral ALL the way to the top, till it was just a small spire....But the crown looks damn cool too. Would love to see it as tall if not taller than burj.

next tallest completed building in china:

Shanghai Tower
Ping An
Century Plaza

in that order, if Sky City is not being build. If it is being build it will fill up any of the spaces. If it finishes as the timeline says in April 2014 it will even block all three tower from ever getting the title

ah, of course. still amazing to think that buildings like pingan, shanghai tower, and wuhan greenland center would be any other countries (except uae) tallest building yet in china its just another megatall.

A bit off topic, but out of curiosity, are there tunnels that run underneath the river connecting the two sides of the city? Seems like lack of transportation methods to the downtown core would stagnate economic progress/growth and whatnot.

Yes, there are several tunnels underneath the river (for cars and subway).
BTW Lujiazui/Pudong isn't really the downtown core of Shanghai.
