I'll try to remember to dig up the photo that I took at the Urban Planning Center but the 3rd tower was bigger but still similar in scale to JinMao/SWFC. This was a few years ago, though, so I'm sure many ideas have changed and there are many proposals.

I know that many ppl think bigger is better but with these two gorgeous buildings in place I hope they don't go much higher than 500m with anything new - no sense in dwarfing out these two.

As SWFC significantly dwarfs the Jin Mao, so should the 3rd tower dwarf SWFC by some 100-150 meters. I think that 3rd tower will be something in 600 - 650m range.

It looks to be a much 'cleaner' build than ICC in HK. There's less fuss around from scaffold rigs and sheets covering the surface. It's as if the developers wanted the construction process of this building to be as beautiful as the final result.

Now it's pretty clear to see that the tower has surpassed Jin Mao
