Tower heralds China’s first super tall district

Groundbreaking ceremonies were held last week to mark the start of construction on 632m tall Shanghai Tower.

The building is located in the Luijiazui Finance and Trade Zone, an area poised to become China’s first super-tall district. Shanghai Tower is being designed by architect Gensler and structural engineer Thornton Tomasetti and developed by Shanghai Tower Construction & Development.

The tower will house offices, shops, a hotel and the world’s highest non-enclosed observation deck. The basement will include connections to the Shanghai Metro and three floors of parking.

The development is estimated to be completed in 2014.
