That one must be around 200m. How come we don't even know the name?

I dont think it would be over 200m, its about 150m i think, it is just that the structures around it are quite short.

Manhattan is not a box forest. I has many buildings with unique styles.

That said, Shanghai, as a city, has way more highrises than New York City. The scale of the concret forests of the two cities are not comparable at all. Shanghai has highrises as far as the eye can see. The thing is, the areas out of Pudong in Shanghai include the bustling heart of the city center of Shanghai. Though they do not form as large an office only CBD as Pudong, collectively the scale is much larger, while the areas out of Manhattan in New York City are just accessories to Manhattan and is a huge stepdown at least skyline wise. A more fair comparison would be to only compare the office towers of both cities. While New York concentrates office towers at the same location from the very beginning, in the Puxi side of Shanghai, office towers, hotels and shopping districts are almost entirely blended with residential towers, so it is very difficult to compare them.

The Lujiazui district, for now, looks more like Lower Manhattan, with taller and more shiny towers. The Pudong district alone is now more comparable to Chicago, which has a linear skyline with several supertalls and then a large flat area with not so much density, than Mahanttan. In the future that will change of course.

The Pudong district is MUCH larger than just the financial zone. Look at the right hand side of this pano (just got back from the hai!).
Everything from the Pearl Tower to the right edge is Pudong, and this doesn't even show the north side of Century Park, the continuous high rise out to Jinqiao (though you can just see the King Tower through the haze) or the river skyline from Lujiazui to the Huangpu Bridge...

Thanks.
Dunno, but it looked in the 160-180m range. I also don't know what the distant twins are also near the left edge. Look to be in Qibao maybe, and must be 150m+.

I think the 161.4m building is the one to the east of the lupu bridge directly opposite the expo site. The one on the left edge of the pano looked taller. More floors anyway.

Hmm, comparing pudong with the rest of shanghai, pudong looks more concentrated with skyscrapers where as Puxi has skyscrapers scattered around. Two very different styles that are so close together. Extremely diverse, well done Shanghai

Hey mate, what u've seen from the photo above just covers half of the city's urban core area.
Most of the pictures in this forum about Shanghai show the Lujiazui financial zone in Pudong district (Huangpu river's east bank, like melbourne's south bank), but the vaster downtown is actually in Puxi(the river's west bank).
