I was waiting until they took off the scaffolding around the aperture before I made any final judgement...But jeeze, wouldn't the circle have been a beautiful echo of the Pearl TV tower. I think it's a nice tower, but this is obviously a compromised vision.

Sorry to bring up this tired issue, I just regret politics had to come into it.

Yes. In my opinion the square hole is much more fitting with the general silhouette of the tower. Take a look at the third pic posted by Skymyhusband: hole's edge is the perfect prolongation of the tower's curved edge.

Agreed. The angular opening is much more modern. I liked the round hole when it was what was going to be built, but once I saw the new design I knew it was the way to go. So much better.

Plus I think it looks more functional with the rectangular hole. A nice big observation deck and hopefully a restaurant up there is better than a "ferris wheel."

What is the difference between Pudong and "Lujiazui"? I even looked it up on Wikipedia and found it a bit confusing. First, is Pudong or Lujiazui within the city limits proper of the city of Shanghai? Is Pudong bigger than Lujiazui? Or is it the other way around. Is there a map that shows this better? I have always been confused when people say Lujiazui verses Pudong.

Pudong vs. Lujiazui

Pudong refers to the entire area on the east side of the river--as opposed to Puxi, which refers to the west side.

Lujiazui is a neighborhood (essentially, a redevelopment zone) in Pudong. It refers to the area with all the new skyscrapers.

Pudong comprises Lujiazui and a bunch of other neighborhoods/districts on the east side of the river.

Shanghai comprises Puxi and Pudong, though I don't know where the actual city limits are.
