good job densetsu, that last photo is incredible, can't even see the rooftop. But that diagram of supertall comparison shows that if the tallest buildings are decided by their rooftops, SWFC will own any towers any day except burj dubai of course.

are they showing video on that light coming out of aurora building in the second photo? its so bright.

This Building looks awesome.
Does anyone know if there is a render of the Shanghai Centre with the completed SWFC?

Look at the Proposed Supertall Section with the Shanghai Tower or Shanghai Center topic. There should be a lot of renders.

(I'm too lazy to give him the link).

The "speed" of those elevators must be really fast, up & down

Where are the rest of the floors on the elevator? For the rest, you have to walk I guess.

Just kidding. I assume, there is another elevator (at least) for the other floors.

There are elevators dedicated to the observation deck only so as to separate office workers from tourists.

"Corner" elevators bring people directly from ground to floor 94 (large exhibition room & 1st observatory floor), then inner escalator up to floor 97 (bottom skybridge) and elevator (located in the "wings") from level 97 up to level 100 (upper skybridge).

In the panorama pics Aurora is a bit of an eyesore (looks like a cheap billboard advertisement) but the SWFC is magnificent, so subtle and elegant.
