Steveve, look on the previous page for a great comparison render I posted from SSC.

They also have some cool pictures of the external glazing being tested.

There's a formula for determining that:

1. Take Gary Busey's average number of consecutive sober days.
2. Divide by 5.
3. Subtract 3.

And voila - Shanghai clean air days.

I feel kinda bad for the SWFC becoming the number 2 of the complex. I think it's design is better than that of the ST. But I like the ST too.

The Pudong skyline is looking like a trophy case with its ever growing set of signature towers.

i'll admit i compare the two, but at the end of the day, Shanghai tower and SWFC are very different looking towers, hard to compare them even though it's good vs good.
