I think the best view of Pudong will be from White Magnolia. Its height is respectable, design very good and will create another skyline in SH.

10/10 from me

Lujiazui has tons of land but the soil simply doesn't have enough buoyancy to support anymore supertalls, the current three is likely the cap.

The semi-circle based tower still has no cladding? Are there issues with it or something?

I'm sure if they dig deep enough they will eventually hit rock, but no one wants to dig a foundation deeper than the building itself.
