I assume you must have taken this from around 380-390 meter, so the public view from the bridges will be even higher up, looking down on the formerly city's tallest.

There will be another U/C buildings, taller, stronger and with best design. We built about 36 superstructures from 300 to 509 (1931-2007), next 40 from 300 to 595 is U/C ( and 3 megastructures, Burj Dubai, Russia tower and Chicago spire). And about 50 approved buildings

Wow, I retract my previous statements about Jin Mao, it doesn't look half bad close up...

Too bad it still looks like a concrete poo stick from far away.

SWFC looking amazing. I love it.
