Shanghai World Finance Center, also translated to be Shanghai Global Financial Hub, located in Lujiazui Zone, Pudong New Area, is a world-class skyscraper in China. It was built completely on August 29, 2008, currently the second tallest building in China and the third tallest building in the world, and also the world’s tallest building with the flat roof. The whole skyscraper is 492 meters high and there are 101 floors on the ground, and three floors underground, and the developer is Shanghai World Finance Center Co., Ltd, but the whole construction is invested by a foreign company, which is a Japanese company named Forest Overseas Co., Ltd. Specifically, Shanghai World Finance Center is jointly invested by more than 40 companies from Japan and the United States of America like Japanese Mori Building Cooperation. The whole investment is over 1 billion US Dollars. In accordance with the original design, the whole building is 460 meters high, and the project area is over 30,000 square meters, and the total architectural area is 381,600 square meters. It is in the neighborhood of Shanghai Jinmao Tower. Due to the influence of the Asia Financial Crisis, the project was paused, and resumed in February, 2003. At the meantime, the authorities of Taipei and Hong Kong both build their skyscrapers with a height over 480 meters, and both of them have surpassed the designed height of Shanghai World Finance Center. But the Japanese does not change their original ambition to build the world’s No.1 skyscraper.
