Agree . :uhh:

But the building is going to have a triangular shape ??

It's KPF fourth building under construction in Shanghai and the third in Lujiazui.

This building might be more intresting than it looks on the renderings. It looks like it will have a nice skin, soft angles and sligtly curved facades. The top is quite unusual. Let's wait and see.

Fantastic location!!!

I thought so but in fact in looks more like a square plan with slightly convex facades. This building is quite subtle, it deserves more than a quick glance. See the change of rythm induced by the three last floors height variation too.

On the renderings, its skin looks very "glassy", like if the whole building was under a glass bell forming a second glass skin, which seems to be the case for its top structure. Once again let's give it a chance.

February 11th 2005, from the JinMao. Still foundations works.

The false stone cladding of the Shangri La Hotel extension south side is almost completed.

And look at those SIP spires ! Crazily high !

Construction is progressing quite quickly on this yard, soon they should be digging the underground floors.

September 10th 2005, from the JinMao. View on a part of the plot. Two of the three underground floors has been constructed in half of the excavation. (great view of the SHKP site too, no activities)

Nice shot with the sunset and all. Looks like there's a nice little grouping forming right there.

Chad Sep 30, 2005 1:14 AM

Will it be taller than Te Shangri La?

avcellvs Sep 30, 2005 7:54 AM

Unfortunatly not. The four towers in this block nearly have the same 180 meters height.
