    Shanghai currently has made progress in their projects, but its skyscrapers are sinking the city.

    Shanghai Tower / 上海中心大厦 |/ 632 M

    Shanghai Tower hits 100 meters on its thrust skyward





    I bet more than a few of you forgot that Shanghai is building the second tallest building on the planet! Not your fault. We've basically ignored Shanghai Tower (上海中心大厦) since announcing its groundbreaking three years ago, but regardless of our neglect, construction is plowing forward. The height of the tower's "core tube" has now surpassed the 100 meter mark. Only 532 meters to go!

    When it is completed some time in 2014, Shanghai Tower will be second only to the Burj Khalifa in Dubai - that is, until those jerks down in Shenzhen complete their new tower in 2015 (and the Indians some time after that.) It will contain 128 floors and will be able to hold 30,000 people, all at the same time!

    Nicknamed the Shanghai Dragon, the design, by Gensler, is essentially nine cylindrical buildings stacked on top of one another, sprialing towards outer space. The design is meant to be eco-friendly, as the twist reduces wind resistance and thus building materials. Also, supposedly there's some sort of doohickey that lets them use rainwater drainage for their air conditioning.
