New York is actually dwarfed by Shanghai...
New York dwarfes Shanghai only with its name... there s no comparison.

Yes, THIS site. It would be the most comprehensive for sure. Go to page 1 of the thread and check out all the previous Parts.

SSC is indeed the best website to search after Skyscraper pics and Construction Updates

Maybe 5-6 meters, or little more... there is a big steel beam at the top linking the MMMMM, and a little more above for the cladding...

I really like this tower because it seems taller than it actually is (because of the cladding :one horizontal cladding isnt equivalent to one floor...)

BTW anyone know how much windows there are in one floor(vertically) I would say two
