That will be awesome!!!

I am hoping it will be more than 600+m or 700+m so that it will stand out as the the big center brother of the three.

Almost there... though I still haven't seen them really building that hole in the top yet. But I can see a little evidence of progress.

I dont think thats a good way to put it. Its very hard not to compare them as they are standing just next to each other and affecting what impression the other one gives. To be honest my personal opinion is that the SWFC is making Jin Mao look worse than it is. I only appreciate SWFC for the height really, but maybe it will grow on me, I guess its the unconventional shape that bugs me.

In contrast to Hong Kong which is very well planned and Beijing, Shanghai gives me the impression that independent architechts design buildings individually, which are plopped in the metropolis without consideration for the urban and natural envronment around it, it just seems so unsorted and unplanned to me with all these very different buildings and an observation tower topped by nearby office towers. But then again there is always two sides of the coins and many may argue that its a positive thing that Shanghai is architecturally versatile.
