Unfortunately, the original thread on this building was trimmed, so we'll have to start fresh.
It's located on Nanjing West Rd. in the heart of the Jing An Business District. It will be a 58 floor office tower and the tallest in Puxi until the Kerry Center expansion and the Xujiahui Tower top it in the coming years.
