Nice Diagram. I can't believe Burj Dubai just overshadowed those super tall buildings. I like the SFWC design better though.


Off-topic, can the Chicago Spire do something to raise its height just to beat the Russia Tower? It feels discouraging that it only got beat by two meters.

Sorry but I dissagre with you we're at 92'nd floor in 2 weekes we'll start the 93'rd floor ...and I would say that 92'nd floor is at 418m and 93'rd at 422m~423m(new record) anyway they will construct 93 and 94 together so in 2 weekes will have our record

When do you reckon they will finish the whole thing?
I will be in Shanghai around late July, kind of hoping that it will be finished by then, maybe I am not being reasonable..

I think the new tower ("Shanghai Center") will be at least 650 meters tall.

gaoanyu,
SWFC will probably be topped out in September this year, and completely finished and opened around March 2008.

Yup! You should check out the bar on the 65-66th floors. They have fairly priced lager and the best urban view on the planet. Cloud 9 is tame in comparison.
