yeah the original plan was for the project to be over 300m but that would block the view of jin mao or SWFC from the bund as they say so they lowered the height which is still very tall but its very classy and this IFC is one of my faves in shanghai

Well, it totally depends from where on the Bund you observe the Lujiazui skyline.

The construction of these towers will definitely improve Shanghai's skyline. Now we can go for density and size once they remove those residential buildings behind the Jin Mao and SWFC.

Pudong is not planned for density. Pudong is actually planed for the exact opposite of density, every skyscraper must be designed to incorporate park space into their lots.
