I don't see the Oriental pearl as tacky. It's the tower i remember Shanghai by, and it's a gorgeous building imo.
As much as i love this building, i do worry it'll look tacky when it's all cladded exactly the same all the way up and round.

there has been some rumors spreading about swfc.

some said that swfc has already started renting the offices , at only ~15$

other said the fee is not as cheap, and almost all slots have been rent

I dont know if anybody knows this, but some years ago this building was shown in a magazine that was titled Skyscrapers of the Future, or something like this. It was awesome! I fell in love with it right then and there.
Cant wait till its finished!

It's weird but in the beginning I didn't really like the SWFC from this angle. But that has certainly changed with this picture!! Cant wait to see it fully cladded.

So skymyhusband can you give us a structural update on the SWFC by anytime soon? I'm wondering if the cladding is still continuing as I speak? Because in order for the temproray structure to be taken off I'm guessing the cladding has to reach the hole.
