I went to Shanghai last Easter and my hotel was just in front of this new skyscraper (that pink building on the left). It looks amazing!
When will it be finished?

Another link confirming (?) that Wheelock Sq. only is 270m tall. Although, it also mentions that it has the tallest concrete structure in Puxi.

http://www.news365.com.cn/wxpd/sh/ja...23_2137670.htm




Interestingly it also talks about Xujiahui Centre being 380m tall.

Maybe 270m is the roof height.

According to SSP:
Roof: 274m
Structure: 298m

I have to say, it looks smaller than Plaza 66 (which is nearby) in real life. This tower definitely doesn't look 298m tall... 270m sounds about right to me.

But yeah, it would be nice with official confirmation from KPF.
