Our views seem to be totally different. For me, this building (Shanghai Center) is really beautiful, a work of finest art. And you said that it is only a huge stick. Oh my goodness, something must be wrong with you my friend.

Another thing is that Jin Mao is more beautiful than Shanghai World Finance Center in my opinion.

You are definitely right! Look at SFWC. Everyone thought it's going to look bad. Well, it seems like its most photogenic skyscraper to date. I love the way it looks!

I'm not a mod/admin, although I was drunk at the time of posting, so just ignore the post.

Maybe is to high, and I don't know about the top. But the rest of the building is great.

Luv those sky gardens.

The Dragon is great, I voted for it and for the SIADR tower (the "sword" or pointed prism) when the proposals first appeared. My only regret is that the building was not designed in China, as the top tower in Shanghai should be. But hey, surely in the future there will be new chances for that...

We don't usually see these very tall skyscrapers only few blocks away from each other. Like in Dubai they have single supertall in the middle of a whole downtown. This trinity is somewhat perfect.

只是在做重型道路而已...各位不必激动...再过个半个月估计临时宿舍也可以造好了~

要想看见坑,最起码还有1年,先要打桩,2000多根桩的工期是10个月左右~
from ssc.cn,

basically saying that they are currently constructing the road, temp houses for the builders will be built within half a month

2000 steel poles needs to be put into the groudn before we can even see the hole, which takes about 10 months~
