Are you saying the plan was to develop the whole plot and not leave a grassy area?

In the U.S. I'm used to seeing skyscrapers surrounded by nothing but a sidewalk. Seeing grass, bushes and trees next to skyscrapers in the middle of nowhere seems weird to me.

any new pic on the building?
That's not a good thing, if the bubble bursts in China, a lot of people will lose everything. Same with the stocks, so many people in China are learning the art of investment for the first time in their lives, and buy into all the hype... :/

thats why the government is trying to calm down the market..if these investing people keep on doing that..the price will just eventually get higher and higher..

I'm reposting my old post because it seems what I said was overlooked...

"There's a difference between a real boom and an inflation fueled boom. The first is based on real market forces (supply and demand) whereas the second is based on inflated money supply - meaning each dollar is of less value than it was before because there are effectively more of them. It skews a businessman's measure of demand because he's getting more money, but in actual fact it doesn't mean more customers.

China is different from the US. The US is a 200 year old economy - it's established in the world and very well developed. China hasn't had a functional economy since 1948 when the Communists took over. It's quite literally just waking up to the world. It's not a developed market like the US so it can boom for much, much longer. Besides, it's not really a boom so much as it is growth."

The whole concept of building large building complexes in Pudong sort of makes it pedestrian unfriendly and really impersonal... not to mention not convenient to move around in.

Why did the planners for Pudong design it to be similar to CBD's with buildings closer together and smaller (width-wise) roads.

Anyways, can't wait for the Shanghai IFC to be completed.

Just look at those spaces! They should build all those Shanghai Center proposals (500+meters) on those empty lots and give them a naming convention like Shanghai Center I, Shanghai Center II, Shanghai Center III, etc.

I take it you're saying the "real boom" is China's and the "inflation fueled boom" is the USA's, right? I mean, we all know the dollar has no relation whatsoever with the production capacity of the USA. It is only still accepted 'cause it's the money of choice to buy oil. China's boom is based on hard work, US economy is based on speculation. You meant this, right? Excuse the OT but I'd like to have it made clear.
