Tallest skyscrapers after Jin Mao are Bocom Towers (265m) and Shanghai Bank Headquarters (252m). Development Tower will be 268m though, height is outdated in that poster.

Those are heights to spire tips. Most of those have roofs at around 230m. Check out the diagrams here to give you an idea

You can only search for Shanghai, not Pudong but you'll get a good idea.

Pictures from the 26th June. Sorry about the quality but it was pretty dark and I did'nt have a tripopd. The 3rd pic was taken from the Jin Mao observation deck. The originals are much larger but I have had to scale them down to save time as the internet is so slow in China.

When I visited the Shanghai urban development museum in 2004 there was a 3rd supertall right next to the WFC and Jin Mao on the giant future model of the city, not quite as high as them but I'd guess still over 400 meters. It had an octagon shape right at the top if I remember correctly but I'v not heard anything about it since.

the third supertall on the z3-2 plot will be taller than both towers... the smallest render we have seen puts it at around 550m.... the tallest up to 700m ogive or take

I don't think Z3-2 plot supertall will be started before 2010 though

Wow, Shanghai looks like it has my kind of climate. Dark and raining.

I definately remember the one on the model being slightly smaller although as I said that was back in 2004.
