I agree. Especially that pano! I've already spent an hour looking at it and zooming in on the details. It's the best photographic representation of Shanghai I've ever seen.

BTW Happy new year everyone!

yes there are quite a few. i would say the shanghai one draws most of its influence from manhattan though.

Judging by the last picture in the set, there appears to be formwork for yet another level being added to the top of the tower.

I think it's temporary, maybe needed for cladding the columns.

The very top will have a higher cladded part too.
