My guess is Shanghai's proximity to the ocean brings the smog/fog out to sea often, whereas Beijing obviously doesn't.

@Kix111: That picture gives me a much better impression of Lujiazui than I had before. I always thought that it was completely pedestrian-unfriendly, and while the streets do look a bit wide, the cool futuristic look of it compensates.

The first design was actually pretty good, though, this is not bad at all.

Beijing has the double issues of nearby coal plants and dust blowing in from the ongoing desertification in Inner Mongolia (which is spreading closer to Beijing).

Beijing is on the hinterlands of the Gobi desert that traditionally kept the Mongols at bay, alot of the particulate is not just manmade pollution but windblown sand and earth. Spring is the worst time to visit as the winds blow in the dust at that time.

great progress on the second, shorter tower, but the main one is taking ages to get underway!

Now all this while I was thinking it was the main tower rising. Finally I realise that it was just the 171m tower, which I imagine had thus been topped out.

LOL you didn't really expect that tower to be that skinny didn't you?

What are you talking about? The main tower wasn't even above ground a few months ago.

I wish the shorter tower had golden cladding as a reference to the old design.

I think you'll find it has hardly risen like I said.
The picture below is from May 17th it is now the end of September and the progress has been very slow.
