Not even the foundation is finished or begun I'm not worried about the tower finishing by 2010.

Btw, is there really no good high resolution renderings (1000x1000+) of the design yet?
i always hated that all chinese buildings dont have any high quality renders..even the swfc renders sucked

look at the chicago spire and new york WTC renders........they are so realistic

Shanghai center model is shorter than it should be, the model looks to be about 560 metres maximum.
