The building is continuing at a frantic pace, and from the view from our window, it appears that it won't be long before the shell of the Shanghai World Financial Center is above that of Shanghai's (and China's) tallest building, the illustrious Jinmao Tower.
The Shanghai World Financial Center, also known as the `giant bottle opener', is set to be the world's tallest building and at 101 storeys high will even cast a shadow over Jinmao Tower's 88 storey splendor.
Due to be completed late 2007, the Shanghai World Financial Center will also remove the title of the world's highest hotel from the Grand Hyatt in Jinmao, although it will be replaced by the Park Hyatt - so at least the title stays in the family. One would also assume that it will also replace the title of the world's highest bar, hotel lobby, etc etc.
