You've clearly never seen the Absolute Towers by MAD in Mississauga, and just like the new Shanghai Tower, neither of them fits into the urban context, and both are like a "my **** is bigger than yours" competition.

But at least this one is still somewhat more aesthetically pleasing than the "Pingan Tower" in Shenzheng, now THAT is a "my **** is the biggest" boast if there ever was one.

This tower is about pushing the boundaries of human innovation and technology. As the population of our planet continues to grow. Along with the rapid shift towards greater urbanization. Buildings of this magnitude will not only be common, but also necessary. China is not building these towers to "show off". They are building them because it makes sense, economically and socially. I can only imagine in my fantasies an entire city with skyscrapers this tall and impressive. So I thank the Chinese every day I see these pictures, for making my dreams a closer reality

The name of the city is Shen Zhen not Shen Zheng

Tall buildings are very symbolic in the case of China it represents a clear statement of intention and ability. Not just China but Asia in general are building up because around 60% of the world's population lives here. The Shanghai Tower and the Pingan Tower don't represent of last of their kind but the very first.

you really want to compare those 2 buildings in Mississauga with Shanghai Tower and the city itself.
You can't be serious.
By the way, this forum is about people who are fascinated about skycrapers and buildings.
Think about it

It looks like they are putting some sort of steel thingy on the top. Too bad the air has been bad the last few days, I can't even see the tower out of my office window.
