I feel like it looks too artificial and doesn't have the same imposing, powerful quality that Lower Manhattan or Hong Kong would have, although I am aware that Shinjuku towers actually have considerable space between them. Its just that Lujiazui does not look grand enough, or large enough, and it carries an artificial air to it. As far as Puxi goes, hopefully one day they will clear out all the slummy houses in between the classical buildings in Huangpu and replace them with high-quality offices so it resembles Hong Kong.

After sooooo many years, 21st Century Mansion seems to be really u/c again. You can notice some progress in this pics (the plot between the SWFC and the red tile lowrises). 200m~, 50~ floors.

Skymyhusband posted this pic today. The plot for Jin Jin Square (2x160m) has been cleared. However, who knows if they are starting it soon or not. I'm not 100% sure wether this is JJS's plot though

The red pavillions look like a footstep, a panda's maybe? The design is ok, it depends on the materials they want to use to cover the stars, the result could be very bland.

Shanghai's metro system will have 512km by 2012 and 970km by 2020.

I hadn't noticed this until today. The planned length keeps being increased once and again

970km is the world's longest isnt it? i hear its going to be anyway.

i still dont get it why would they build a line to PVG when they have the maglev already and they are not earning anything out of it...
