Today's Shanghai is not only a major science and technology, trade, financial and information center in China, it is a place of international cultural exchange and integration. Shanghai has developed into an international metropolis, the world's important economic and trade center. Also put forward some proposals Shanghai will become the future of global cities. International mainstream media even Shanghai described as "a model of the world's fastest-growing economy."
China's economic growth is visible in the line of Shanghai's skyline. About 10 years ago, the only building in town that exceeded 200 meters was the Tower Jin Mo; today, on the horizon line there are about 21 buildings that are more than 200 feet high. Dozens of projects take shape and are amazing by the shape and size. World Financial Center, Jin Mao Tower (the tallest building in the city) and Oriental Pearl Tower (mall, hotel and observation point) are just some of the architectural jewels of this metropolis in full training.
Even in this situation, these buildings are small compared with Shanghai Tower, still in draft form. It is expected to be completed in 2014, surpassing the height to 600 meters.
