I guess they'll demolish that huge piece of crap and build a nice cluster of skyscrapers on its ashes some day
Kerry Center Phase I at Puxi maybe??

Then, notice that the grey tower you see in the background in the first pic is Plaza 66 (288m), which looks quite shorter than the main tower of the Kerry Center.

Anyway, if the final height is under 300m we'll just pm the mod to change it, take it easy.
oh,i think it not so science.maybe u could use "about 300+".
this is a international forum,we could not be laughed by the foriegners,especially the westerns.

don't like those "cages" on the tops.
i think a simple antenna would do better.
but the whole complex looks quite good, they've done the very best by only using boxes. it looks harmonious and orderly but still interesting.

I' ve heard that it's already U/C...but since that block is exploding with many huge projects, it is hard to confirm.

They've been prepping the site for about a month now. It looks like it's a go.

Some people said the final design has nothing to do with these renders, and it is unlikely to reach the 300m. We'll see...

some news says it'll be the highest building in Puxi.

edit: uh, I may be mistaken it with Xujiahui tower.
