Nice towers but I have an impression that the inspiration of the towers is from the New York WTC.

Your wish will be partially fulfilled

Apple is going to open another store in Shanghai Hongkong Plaza on Sep 25th (another in Beijing as well). They will also open a third Apple store in Huangpu District soon.
Both will be located in Puxi, for Pudong is less active in terms of commerce.

According to Apple, they don't expect as many Apple stores as Starbucks in China, but they aim to open as many as Louis Vuitton does(since when Apple products are luxury?).
Cities like Shenzhen will get more than one Apple stores too.

It's zoomed in a little, but the skyline really does dominant from that vantage point thanks to a lot of low-rise buildings along the Bund


Here's a picture of the SIFC from the summer:

You've probably heard this a lot, but still I have to say you took some brilliant pictures!

really beautiful towers, too bad they are only 260 m high; would be much better if the height was > 300

Yeah, originally they will be two 320m tower, but at that height the view of Jinmao and SWFC (see from the bund) will be blocked. So, 250+260+85, it's a compromise.

Yes, the axis is quite clear, although not all parts of the Bund will see them blocking each other in a straight line.

I think the slight height difference makes both look a bit better.
