Hey!
That looks like a 21st century version of Denver's "Cashie" Wells Fargo Center (originally named United Bank Building).

And here is the base and atrium of Denver's Wells Fargo Center - it too has similarities to the China Merchants Bank Tower.

Denver's Wells Fargo Center (originally United Bank Building) was built in 1983 and the China Merchants Bank Tower is 25 years later. You can see obvious differences in the designs because of that style change over the last 25 years, but there are also clear similarities.

^I think that two pictures hijacking a thread with the intent of boosting your locality is quite enough.

Fortunately there are plenty of those that are much better kept (and thus won't be torn down) in the area.

Aug. 21st. Took a stroll along North Sichuan Rd., camera in tow.

Rose Plaza







Jia Jie International

(...and apparently, downtown Seattle as well )






...and this one going up at N. Sichuan and Wu Jin Road (forgot to check out the sign for the info--looks like it's being built above the currently U/C line 10 subway--and probably over 100m)

The tower at the X3-2 plot (foreground) in Lujiazui (the last plot in Lujiazui) is u/c now.
Could any of the Shanghai forumers pleeeaase go there and see if there are any renders at the site?

OK. I'll hunt for the rendering. I should go out there and check out a few plots anyway.

Competition Winners Announced for Massive Shanghai Project

Quote:
Major mixed-use projects in China, which tend to feature skyscraping towers at their epicentres, often initiate an international design competition to ensure a remarkable end result. The winners of these design competitions are then tasked with seeing massive projects through to completion. On February 22, it was announced that Goettsch Partners out of Chicago and Hong Kong-based multidisciplinary architecture and design studio Lead 8 have won such a contest for a site in Shanghai.
