In Shanghai everything is so big that this tower looks quite small yet it is a bit lower than Mercury City tower in Moscow.

Tbh the facade on the smaller tower is quite disappointing. They better make the right decision for the supertall.

Progress on the lowrises is also very slow. One of the slowest projects in China.
