Lots of new towers have been build since then of course.

I personally don't think any of the main three Shanghai skyscrapers are kitschy. They've done well with them.

So do I , I really don't get the hate for the Pearl Tower.
Along with the Trio, it makes Shanghai one of the best skylines in the world, even if Shanghai doesn't have as 'massive' a skyline as other cities like Hong Kong and New York.

That's just a lot of highrises, doesn't look all too massive to me.The taller towers are too spread out, should be more clustered.


-edit- A bit off-topic, but speaking of Shanghai's skyline, I have already asked in another thread but didn't get an answer: Are there any tall towers planned for the new free trade zone? Or is it too early to think about that?
