Great tower (even if it is a never-was-been in the WTB stakes), but ground level looks dull and lifeless and suppose the same could be said for most of Pudong, and all those commie blocks that stretch to the horizon... well it's not ideal is it? This tower really is like a flower growing in a mud patch IMO.

ALL buildings have lightning rods on top, as does this one. I don't have to look to know that it has one. If not then someone was really, really, really stupid.

I'm sure it have a few short lightning rods on top, Is no need for a 50m lightning rod (2m is enough).

The gap in the center will be filled with 2 IFC.

The gap near Oriental Pearl will never be filled, cos' is a park (a city need somme green, not only glass concrete and steel)

it would be filled, i think, with the cluster of 200+ towers from the shipyard redevelopment, although they will look quite small, but they will still fill the gap i think

Maybe it will look that way... the 200+ towers from the shipyard redevelopment will rise behind Oriental Pearl, Ocean Aquarium and The Park.
