I don't concur with you . This has a more classy royal look. Don't get me wrong .I like the shanghai tower ,but Shanghai tower won't settle into any skyline. It just has way too futuristic a desgin, but the shenzen tower would settle into any design on the earth.

Block after block of concrete and glass is monotonous. A city need needs greenery to bring in residents. With residents you bring in retail and night life. If you just have block after block of office buildings the area becomes a ghost town in the evenings and weekends.

Density is fine, but not at the cost of eliminating every green area. Trust me, I live in São Paulo, and you can feel the urban heat islands in parts of the city that have less trees and are more dense.

I`ve been in Shenzhen this year and there is enough green space.
