I don't think we should be so pesimistic about heights. Notice that there are basically two heights, one for midrises (around 120m) and another for highrises (around 210m), all the buildings excepting a few have one of these heights. The render is so conceptual that I don't think it is trustable about the skyline.

Though it is severely lacking in density, these buildings are not short at all. If you compare them to the Jin Mao, SWFC, and the ring of 200+m offices already built, you will notice that even in this render, these towers are rarely under 200m.

@kix111

I mean, I guess at this point in time, judging from recently built Shanghai buildings, we can trust architects enough not to design horrendous monstrosities of the mid 90's. New buildings built after 2000's have had very sleek, aesthetically pleasing designs so lets just hope developers keep it that way.

For that like splitting legs structure, how do they erect the lift if thus so? and if theres no lift, how conveniently you can reach the top floors?

I hope they redo the street layout in Pudong in the future. The atmosphere is very cold and unfriendly, with no shops, and the streets are so dangerously wide to cross. Huangpu district across the river had a much better quality of life.

I've been to Super Brand. It does little for the streetscape; Lujiazui is just as barren as it always has been. There is so much potential, but they chose to build big plazas and wide streets -- I believe the Chinese term would be "huang liang," no?
