I have an idea. Maybe some ppl who live in, near, or are planning on visiting Shanghai around the expected finishing date can have like a camp-out near the SWFC. Then, you guys would be the first ones to see it completed and can also take the first vids and pics. Then maybe send it to like a news channel and let the whole world see!

Does anyone know if SWFC is directly connected with the subway system underground?

I hate to tell you but that's not fog, it's pollution. It's rare to ever see a blue sky in China because of all the pollution. I've lived here for 5 years and you can count on 2 hands the # of days you get a year with a real, pure blue sky.

There is a subway station across the street from the Jin Mao--which puts it more or less across the street from the SWFC as well.

I am asking because in Toronto's financial district, most of the highrise buildings are connected underground with shops, etc. and are connected with several subway stations.

Isnt that because it gets freaking cold so people dont want to walk outside if they don't have to.

Just like many of Hong Kong's buildings and MTR stations!
