Shanghai To Build World's Tallest Tower

Despite the terrorist attacks in the U.S., Shanghai's financial center still shows interest in building the world's tallest building.

"The tower, designed to rewrite world records, is located in the financial area of Lujiazui, Pudong Road, with a total floorspace of 335,420 square meters. It would have 3 floors underground and 94 floors above the ground, near the world third Jinmao Mansion. When finished, it will rise 466 meters high, 14 meters over the current world top, the 95-storied Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpar."
