Do you have news about the Shanghai Center? I'm not familiar with that project.

The design and the height for the Shanghai Center haven't been released, but all renders seem to be above 500m, some of them as high as 750m~. According to a worker of the project who writes on ss.cn, the final design was supposed to be announced on April 18, but it has been delayed again as they want to make it taller.

BTW, they posted a thread saying that China 117 tower might be revised to 600m.

I know. That is the dilemma. Even with the fins, it looks 95% the same as 2IFC ..Hopefully they will eventually figure out a better crown to put on the top.

600 is incredible, and now we can see this modified 2 international finance center rise soon. But only 32 metres shorter than the shanghai center, but this tower is ready to rise and will finish way ahead of shanghai center and therefore when built it will be the tallest in China.

Has this tower always been twin tower or have I read it wrong?

The twin towers next to the main tower were added after the announcement, seems like they're transitioning from making it a lonely tower into a new CBD.
