wow, it looks really nice. Its a shame that the two smaller buildings are in the way. I really wanted a front view of the twins. Must be one of the best looking twins around

Yeah, it does look like one of those brick mobile phones. but made into a very classy set of twins with chinese styled cladding and part of an awesome skyline. Well done Citic and shanghai


BTW, who occupies the twins and who occupies the smaller buildings? I assume mandarin gets the smaller two for hotels?

Yes, these two towers are supposed to be used by mandarin oriental for hotel and service apartments. But there has not been any visible progress on them for a year. Meanwhile, the tall twins have been apparently completed a while ago but are still not open. Does anybody know what is going on?
