Because Jin Mao Tower doesn't own that plot of land.

I love this tower, the nicest one under construction!!!
just the first 30-40 meters from ground level are a bit boring... why no windows, no cladding, nothing... hope they'll do something there soon...
good night evereybody...

^ But it does look good if you view the entirety of the building.

Don't forget the big podium to be built around the basis... what you see right now will be hidden afterwards.

Look at that:

Those first floors are full part of the podium.

Oh good, I didn't know there was going to be a podium. That'll look a LOT better. That concrete base is awful.

Thanks Skymyhusband!

The concrete base has to be considered as a hidden part of the podium...

Jin Mao looks great in that photo!

So what's the deal with the pieces of cladding that don't match on the near side, and the missing pieces on the other two sides? I'm assuming that the two missing pieces serve some purpose, as they reflect each other.

Suddenly it looks like Jinmao and SWFC are quite isolated because other stuff aren't tall enough.
