I reckon the Jin Mao tower still looks better. I love the crown on the Jin Mao, but this is definitely a unique building.

I think both buildings compliment each other. One is a traditional Chinese elegant design and the other is a sleek sophisticated modern design.

I agree that this is Shanghai's most beautiful building. I love the public access to it and the fact that it would have glass elevators running up two sides.

The WFC looks great!!!! I am curious though, for skyline reasons, why did they but these buildings so close together. It takes away from the two beautiful buildings.

Top overall width is about 80m, and the level 101 skybridge + or - 60m.
That's a lot
