Shanghai World Financial Center


Shanghai World Financial CenterAs the new-born and fashionable tourist attraction, Shanghai World Financial Center is always the center of the public and many people are willing to experience the different taste and feeling to see Shanghai from the highest point of Shanghai. Shanghai is a concrete jungle with a lot of world famous tall buildings. Shanghai World Financial Center perhaps gives the tourists the different feeling in different angle.

The Shanghai World Financial Center is a super-tall skyscraper in Shanghai. It is a mixed use skyscraper which consists of offices, hotels, conference rooms, observation decks, and shopping malls on the ground floors. Park Hyatt Shanghai is the hotel component containing 174 rooms and suites. On opening, this hotel will become the highest in the world, surpassing the Grand Hyatt Shanghai on the 53rd to 87th floors of the neighboring Jin Mao Tower.

Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, the 101-story tower was originally planned for construction in 1997, but work was temporarily interrupted by the Asian Financial Crisis in the late 1990s and later to accommodate design changes by the developer. The building of the tower is financed by several multinational firms, including Japanese, Chinese, and Hong Kong banks, as well as by the Japanese developer and as-yet unnamed American and European investors. American investment bank Morgan Stanley is coordinating the financing for Mori Building.
On 14 September 2007 the skyscraper was topped out at 492.0 meters and became the second tallest building in the world; as well as the tallest structure on mainland China, including Hong Kong. It is currently the world's tallest completed building by roof.

On 28 August 2008, the SWFC officially opened for business. On August 30 the Observation Deck opened with a view from 3 levels. The highest view is at 474 m above sea level. The entrance fee is 110 RMB. Such kind of experience of seeing Shanghai from the tallest building is very unique and impressive.
