Does someone know what the FSI of Pudong will be like in the future? Not so high when you see the open space between the building I think.

I hate it how it makes the Jin Mao looks small.I mean its 421m tall and looks small next to SWFC.I am wondering how it will look when the taller third tower is been built.Maybe SWFC will also look small than and Jin Maolike a dwarf.

In the shot above, I couldn't help but recognize the new foundations in the ground surrounding SWFC. What's going up around it? And also, I've visited a lot of cities in the world, but Shanghai is the only one I've noticed that uses a random network of horizontal concrete braces when making its foundations. Why is that?

i do really hate the design of the tower down in the middle front ... i remind me it must be a national bank building, it looks so ugly and old. didnt compare with the modern skyline of pudong. ... but nice pic

I've seen it in Taiwan for much smaller projects too. Seems to be some method for underground construction.
