Unknown highrise in Shanghai

Can anybody knowledgeable about Shanghai skycrapers please help to identify a highrise that I find very characteristic, yet whose name I can't find anywhere?

I have uploaded a picture (46k) at
http://www.planetsdb.com/dl.php?f=96...skyscraper.jpg

The building is located in Shanghai's Puxi district north of Yu garden (where I took my picture) and can be seen from a lot of directions.

Cheers!

Not sure of the name but it's an old building that was re-clad about five years ago. Previously it was a horrible yellow and grey striped monstrosity (I kid you not) and far and away the ugliest thing visible along the bund. The crown is all framework. It's not that high so there's no thread on it.

I really like that one and I didn't realize it was just a re-clad job of an old building. Anyone have a photo of what it used to look like?
