Shanghai Building Help needed

Hello,

I just joined this forum. I am fascinated by all those skyscrapers around the World-specially Asia.
I took some photos of Shanghai buildings and I would need the name of the buildings. Would there be anybody in this forum who could help me out?
Unfortunately I don't see an option to upload the images.

First make sure your photos are uploaded to an online image hosting site that allows hot linking to another site (ie, Flickr, Photobucket, Pbase, etc.).

Next, copy the web address of your photo and paste it here as follows:

[IMG]addressofyourimage[/IMG]

And I will help you with building names (as much as I can) once they're uploaded.

I don't know how to upload to Flcker, but I uploiaded it to my website.
1st shot:
www.dwcimages.com/Shanghai/Buildings1.jpg
I need the names of Bldg 1+2
I have the name of the left ones: Bank of China, Bank of Communication and Bank of Shanghai
2. shot:
www.dwcimages.com/Shanghai/Buildings2.jpg
the No. 3 Building. at the time I took the shot, there was no name yet.
3. shot:
www.dwcimages.com/Shanghai/GoldenBldg.jpg
I I think, took it from Volvo Bldg on South Pudong, near the World Plaza.
On my last night I walked around and hoped to get the name, but it was soo dark there, it is possible that shot no, 4 is the name......? t

5. shot: I took it out of a taxi.....but it looks so nice..any idea, in which area that would be?

I only know the name of building 3 - Maryland Building.

The sign in shot 4 is an adress. Perhaps that's the name of the building as well. It says Nan [?] Bei Lu 201 Hao, meaning South [something] North Road, No. 201. Can't identify one of the characters due to a combination of picture quality and poor Chinese reading skills.

The area depicted in the last shot is the area around Central Huaihai Road (淮海中路), and the name of the tall building is Hong Kong Plaza/Square (香港广场).

Hope that helps for now.


EDIT: It might be an idea to post inquiries like this in the main architecture forums in the future, since the local Asian forums are almost dead here at SSP. Try the Chinese forums at SkyscraperCity.com too!

That's right, the building you've marked with green colour.

Hi staff,

would you know by any chance the name of the building, which is 1/2 hidden by the Bank of Shanghai set behind on shot no. 2 (bldg. No 3) so between Bank of China and Maryland Bldg - green bldg.)?

Thank you.

^^
The building between the Bank of Shanghai and the Merryland Bldg. (correct spelling) is the Azia Center (169m / 32fl).

As for the buildings in Shot 1;
Building no 1 is the New Shanghai International Tower (168m / 39fl).
Building no 2 is the Jing Yin Mansion (160m / 39fl).

I have no idea about the golden building though.
