Just look how dirty it is. Do you think someone from China will just take a photo like that? That one who takes this photo must have hated the country's environment or even hated country itself. This photo will be a pure candidate for the media who likes to bash China and its environment.

^
To the photo's credit, it was most likely taken through a dirty window--as someone who has taken many, many HDR shots through dirty glass, I can spot a lot of evidence in the shot which bring me to that conclusion. In addition, the high visibility from such a distance and the puffy, white clouds suggest that there was little to no pollution in the air when the photo was taken.

It looks as clean as London. What makes beauty is not the same for everyone*. By the way, I find the photo wonderful. So many layers, such a great composition. Clearly, HDR helps reveal the numerous layers of landscape proposed to the eye there !

The area is surrounded by Gaoqiao chemistry company and DuPond Agricultual Chemistry Company,so its worse than most places in shanghai,but not as terrible as you expected
check the panoramic photos below(you can "go around" and take a virtual tour):

Cladded it'll look great, a skywheel in the circle on the old design would've been a fun ride.

^ I think the circular ride would have bene pointless. You start off very high and go a little bit higher and then down again. What's the point? I did prefer the circular hole though.

WOW! Finally SWFC topped out!

By the way, to that artwork of arrows though these models of skyscrapers... In my view that artist might be an anti-skyscraper or don't like the change that is happening in China.
