Of course, everything is a copy of London Bridge Tower, the only original design under the sun...

So? These towers are similar in some ways but different in many others. I would never call it a copy because it just isn't. But this thread is dedicated to SWFC so i don't know why you even started about this. Now let's stick back to topic and wait for pictures with the whole cladding finished.

Guys, when you detect a troll instead of paying attention to him (that's what they want, so you are just feeding him) why don't you just report the post or pm a mod

Edit: Keep on topic, please. The troll has just been brigged for reoffending.

Nearly complete! Since the pics are a few days old, I would imagine that they're almost totally done with the cladding, ready for the July opening

Handover for the office floors has been pushed back until July. Don't know about the rest.

Front cladding looks complete, crane removed, nearly complete! Now all that's needed is doing the interior, and tenants usually do that (except for basics, infastructure, etc...) so the office floors will open any day now! The hotel will take longer though, but definately will be open by September (hopefully earlier).

Does anyone have any good pictures of Pudong before they started building Lujiazui Finance & Trade Zone?
