Burj Dubai and Shanghai Tower are much more futuristic IMO

Burj Dubai in no way is futuristic . If anything it is pyramidal sturcture for higher stability. The shanghai tower is in my view futuristic cause it has glass facade as a covering . Which i am very interested to see how the engineers set up.

I think that we should salute the idea ... instead ofa building thousands of houses and low rise building and destroy the country they decided to go up and create a mega structure . I believe that this is an excellent response to our endless growth . it s mart and hoepfully the building will be eco friendly !

I am not sure if I get it, I this whole larger area that Huaxi seems to be part of more or less one freaking big urban sprawl? Yes, for sure, sprawl with lots of small structured agricultural land thrown in between, but nonetheless.

Is it like in it uses to be in sprawl that you need a car to get anywhere (shops, services, jobs apart from farming)?

i live near this building(about 15minutes driving).the administrative system: huaxi village--huashi town--jiangyin county---wuxi city--jiangsu province--PRC jiangyin county has about 1.2 million population, the urban eara(we call city center) is far from huaxi village. in the past times,the villagers in this eara normally live in private house(2 or 3 storey,250 squar meters),a family a house.but as economy developing, more and more private houses are demolished,the villagers moves to well planed new highrises.the goverment provide two compensation solution for villagers:the same square meters for apartment(normally two sets of 125 square meters apartment),or get cash(70000 usd to 100000 usd,depends where private house located).most people choose to get 2 sets of apartment.
huaxi villagers are quite rich, average 20000 usd income per person each year. the village has huaxi group(shenzhen stock market),in 2009,the village industry sales 6.6billion usd. each family has a share hold of the group, most income are share hold bonus.

wow, best pic of this tower so far. The photo above reminds me of the Pudong bend. I really hope they don't do something like that as there are ancient buildings around.
