Taller than the Shanghai World Financial Center (the “Buttle Openner”) and the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, meet The Shanghai Tower!
Interviewer: Hi Shanghai Tower, welcome to one of the world’s most impressive cities. Would you like to introduce yourself?
Tower: Hi everyone! It is so good to finally be here. Check out some fascinating facts about me – I am quite a tower!
You can visit me in Lujiazui area in Pudong. Just take metro line 2 and get off at Lujiazui station- the signs will lead you to me.
It took 8 YEARS to complete my structure. They finished building me on March 3, 2016. Don’t I look beautiful?

How expensive was I to build? Hold on to your wallets! 148 billion RMB (22 Billion USD).
At 632 metres (2,073 ft) high I am the second tallest building in the world today, after the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. But I will go down to the fifth tallest in the world by 2020 – how sad…
I have the world’s fastest elevator – 18 meters per second, so for total of 119 floors it takes only 55 seconds for the elevator to reach to the top.
On the 126th floor at 583.4 meters stands my “Shanghai Eye”. It is the highest place people can reach in Shanghai and the closest to the sky. In the future music concerts will be held there so people feel like they are in heaven.
What can you find inside me?
A basement from B5-B1
A retail area from area 1 at- L1-L5
An office area from 2-6 at- L8-L81
A hotel, area 7 at- L84-98
A High-End hotel and offices at- L101-115

I have a place to work, sleep, eat and entertain. Come by sometime to visit!
Hope to see you soon!
