Dumb question here. What is the name of the building next door? Is that Jin Mao?


Nevermind, I read back a couple of pages.

I salute to those who took those photos so that all of us here can have up to date information of this beauty all the time.

My appreciation also goes to skymyhusband who kindly browsed through all the photos and selected the best ones for us.

I think this supertall really deserves all the attentions from all of us here.

I'm liking the fact that they chose a rectangular hole rather than the circular hole. It just seems to fit the outline of the building better with a rectangular one...

I'm sure either way would've looked good though!
