If I recall correctly, that rollercoaster like crown scheme was done by a forumer here.

As long as it doesn't have a giant diamond on top, I'm OK with it.

Amazing pics. My favourite project on the planet, and not just by a little bit. So elegant and striking, the perfect signature tower to contrast the chaotic, layered and immense skyline that is shanghai.

It's partly the angle that creates this impression.

And height-wise, Jim Mao matches up pretty closely with WTC1.

Thank You, Nobody want's to compare 1 WTC with anything, but thanks for saying it, 1 WTC ( it's, Beautiful,, I love it, I'm American) it's only a tad taller than Jin Mao, and SWFC, (if it were next to it) would make it look like 2WTC.

I was half joking with the whole Previous Spire debate. (To me, Jin Mao, was mentioned, so The Spire is incredible, and looks wrong if it were removed).. And please wash your damn feet,, JUST messing with you!

May I ask when this building will be ready to enter? As in when can I expect to be able to visit the observation area?

Why has the cladding gotten so slow recently. Today is a beautiful day, and I have been staring at this building from the window of my office all day, and I haven't seen the crane move once, or lift anything.
