From today:
The cladding is only missing a few more pieces, otherwise the buildings are externally complete.

The renders did not do these buildings enough justice. These towers turned out great.

The are another 2 smaller towers on the river side of the 2 tall towers, either one or both are hotel & serviced apartments supposedly to be managed by Mandarin Oriental, but I dunno if that was assumed or confirmed. I don't think any of the buildings are for CITIC Pacific's headquarters. Both of the tall towers have been sold, one each to two different Chinese banks. The real name of the project is Lujiazui Binjiang Financial City but it includes a huge area all down the river and about 850,000 sqm of space. This is just phase 1 of 3.

Well, I sure hope they don't put ugly bank logos (especially in red) on top of the buildings.

I remember seeing renders posted a long time ago, does anyone still have them?

It'll be great to see the CBD expand further outwards.

yeah, not a lot of towers in the pudong area is short. These towers how ever would have been better if they were the main focus and not 'part' of the skyline. A nice open area at the front of the towers or a road through them would have been nice. Plus, if there were no tall towers around these towers, then it would make them more imposing.

They're right by the waterfront though, so they do have a prominent location.
