Is there any way you can get to Xujiahui and take a picture of the plot? I used to live in Xujiahui (before I discovered this forum!) and I used to walk past it quite often - they always seemed to be doing something at the site...

A possible reason for slow progress is the fact that they are extending a metro line underneath Xujiahui creating a 3 line hub (Line 1, Line 9 and 11?).

Also during the Expo lots of construction was stopped.
The site beyond the subway construction still hasn't been cleared - which means it looks almost the same as in big-dog's pics from oct-10.

When I walked past the plot yesterday, I could see those cranes moving.
What are those cranes? They look like those you can see at ports (for moving containers).

I suspect that those cranes are for the new metro interchange. Line 11 will come to Xujiahui in 2 years.

This project is dead for me.

oh, i thought that was just the name of the tower.

I first read about the tower on emporis.com http://www.emporis.com/building/xuji...shanghai-china and one of the pictures on it makes it look like it's in Lujiazui lol.

Possible design. They failed to provide a source.

Wow, I didn't expect this ever getting built, at least not as a supertall.

Honestly, I would prefer a supertall more eastward (Jing'An or around People's Square). On a smoggy/foggy day you won't be able to see this tower from Lujiazui (It's just the other side of the city).

So hopefully 3 supertalls u/c construction in Shanghai soon?! I agree with lianli though, Jingan CBD needs a couple 300-400m towers!
