When this lady is lit-up at night is going to be a sight to behold! It will probably surpass the IFC in Hong Kong as far as light show impressiveness (I got to see it first hand last month)... I can hardly wait!

I'm also excited to see the lighting scheme. I'm hoping there is lighting along the indentation of the curve to really show off the shape at night. It would fit in with how SWFC is lit too.

I agree. Seems to be a quite complex building process, but I see more progress recently.

I made it out to Lujiazui today, so I got a couple of shots of the Shanghai Tower.

The weather is kinda bad but I only make it out to Pudong once every few months. These were taken like an hour ago.

Here it is between the IFCs



Here is a shot of the Big Three



Here is a shot of the base. Its actually hard to get a full shot because the Jin Mao tower is across the street and you can't back up far enough

The base has a modern look, a bit like in Star wars.

I was at the Toronto Blue Jays game the other night, and snapped this picture of the CN Tower at night. Significant, because the ST is now about the same height as the completed CN Tower is.

I don't know about others, but I'm somewhat concerned with the crown. While it has the chance to top off and complete an incredible building, if its change in design ends up effecting its dynamics in relation to the rest of the building, the result could absolutely ruin the tower. I just hope it integrates seamlessly, and doesn't end up looking like some tacky add-on.
