I totally agree! It's hard to believe the Jin Mao is still one of the world's tallest buildings when it is totally overwpowered by the massive World Financial Center. They should not have placed them across the road from each other....

I saw this building in person last July and it looked fantastic. I wish i could see it like it is now. I didn't get to see the hole in real life and I'm sure it looks great.
