I can't believe how much the SWFC and Jin Mao dominate the skyline.
They need to build some "filler" towers between the "sea of 150-200m"
buildings and the giant 2.
The apartment buildings (between 30 & 40 stories) look so tiny compared to the giants.

shanghai is generally very dense, so the Lujiazui skyline is not always visible due to high buildings all around town. but compared to the denser residential or commerical areas in other places of shanghai, Lujiazui is not that dense (but still "denser" than most of beijing).

cheers!
