Not sure. Likely to be around 180-190m imo.

In any case, that whole area was a mess last summer, you had to walk around the entire Lujiazui Park in order to reach SWFC and Jin Mao.

Btw, there's going to be a big metro hub on this location (Lujiazui Zhan) as well in the future - some of the construction is related to that as well.
I rarely cross the Huangpu when I'm in Shanghai. Most of the time I just stay in our neighbourhood.

Lujiazui still needs some years to become "nice".

Thanks for the info.

Hehe. I just lived there last summer, but I will be back in July again (will probably stay near Century Park though) - you too? Let's have that beer.

Yup, the smaller building will house the W Hotel, while one of the towers will house a Ritz-Carlton.

Yeah that's the (horrible) China Safe Building, developed by Ping An apparently (?). I thought oliver999 was referring to the Tai Ping Life building in the plot behind SIFC since the China Safe/Ping An Building isn't nearly visible in the above photo.
