I must admit I like this project, of course "White Magnolia Plaza" will be (only) the 6th tallest buildings in SH, but which building will give the best view of Shanghai?? Isnīt it perhaps this one?

The news said this tower was topped out at a rate of one floor every four days, pretty amazing

So to get this clear, why is Shanghai's sky sometimes perfectly clear, a bit blurry and extremely smog-like as seen in the pics above?

Pictures posted once every few days always seem to indicate different air conditions. What causes this rapid change?

It depends on the wind direction, if the wind comes from the sea the air would be much cleaner. Also, when the air condition is not so good, shooting frontlighting helps. Finally it lie with how far you can see, photos take from high above the ground always shows how nasty the air actually is.

The best view of Shanghai is and always will be from the Pearl Tower. It is the only high-up place in town from which you will never be able to see the Pearl Tower .
