I absolutely agree.

Let's hope that the bridge on the observation deck will get a glass floor similar to the CN Tower and the Macau Tower, so that everybody can enjoy this view once the tower has opened.

I was watching Nova the other night, the show was about highrise building safety and design, and it had a segment on the Shanghai WFC, it showed the observation platform with glass floors, just like the CN tower.

The SWFC, Shanghai Centre, Shanghai IFC, and the Jin Mao Building will all make a great cluster of buildings when they've all been constructed.

Why are we even talking about this? This thread is supposed to be for SWFC now politics. Please let us stop talking about global warming/tyrannical governments/cars.
I agree! Leave politics, global warming and all this other left wing crap for another site. Lets keep the subject on beautiful skyscrapers. Like this one.
