Maybe, but for all the urban planners there are in Shanghai I think its chaotic. Too bad because it takes away from the effect of modernism that I believe they are attempting to achieve. Aside from the individual buildings, it SEEMS very third world (sorry if this PERSONAL assessment hurts anyone's feelings).
I strongly disagree. It's good to have normal street-life mixed in with high-rise office towers to have local places to eat and shop. Local neighborhoods may have less density, technically speaking, but they feel denser and more communal because the streets are narrower and distances less far apart. They are more pedestrian friendly because the distances are not as great as with high rises where you have to go far to cross the street (and the street is 6-8 lanes wide).

It looks like a metro station is under construction right next to the plot, underneath a road. Is this correct? Which line will the station be on?

Yes. I believe that is International Terminal Station on Line 12, which is scheduled to open at the end of 2012.

Look at the shape of the site. There may have been some doubt before but this is definitly going now. It looks like the Shanghai Tower did a few years ago.

New renders. They failed to credit the source, so I can't tell where they come from or if they are actually 'new' or not.
