According to SSP Shanghhai has 27 towers that are 200m or more, Hong Kong has 33 and New York has 50.

Shanghai has more U/C - 13 towers compared with 5 in New York and 4 in HK, so when construction is finished New York will have 55, Shanghai 40 and HK 37.

Real top-part is being built (cladding support and maybe "roof", visible on second pic).

Yes, next to be built is the lower level 97 skybridge.

looking at this pic, i count 2 tall bldgs? shanghai really needs some 300m towers to give the city a balanced feel.
