Beautiful! Those glass windows really add the great look! I hope a great skyscraper like that will be built in the Philippines (but please, I hope a Filipino designer wouldn't copy it. )

This has to be the best thread on this site because most of the shots/updates show not only the SWFC going up but also Jin Mao. Every time I see Jin Mao I like it more and more. These truly will be spectacular contrasts to each other when finished & opened.

Is the 3rd monster still planned nearby these? I don't have the photo on hand but when I visited the Shanghai Urban Planning museum in 2003 they showed Jin Mao, the SWFC, & something else that was taller than Jin Mao and probably taller than SWFC. I hope the next thread will show another monster going up and give us 100's of pics to enjoy SWFC & Jin Mao together.

The 3rd giant next to Jin Mao and SWFC is still planned but not decided. It will be great to watch it growing up for sure...

I'm hoping the third one will have a Chinese Modern Architecture and it will surpass Burj Dubai. OH SNAP! Then Dubai will build Al Burj

I know what you are saying but Jim Mao hold the record only by stucture cause the roof height belongs to SWFC so if my calculations are correct starting of level 93 taking into account the structure as Jim Mao's pin will mean that we have a new record

I agree... this is my favorite building under construction. SWFC and Jin Mao Go together so well together, the construction updates of the 3rd tower will be great!

The design for the 3rd tower has not been chosen yet. There have been numerous proposals. But as far as I know it will be 600m+ or even more
