SHANGHAI | Huamin King Tower | 846 FT / 258 M | 63 FLOORS

It will be all office with what looks to be a shopping mall at the base. I'll update this thread with more information as it comes.

The area looks sort of familiar, but I can't place it. Is that right near the Xinzha Road metro station just north of People's Square?

The tower looks interesting. I think I like it, and it's pretty tall. They certainly like the flared top look here in Shanghai - there are several buildings here that I can think of with flared tops.

It look like the top has even more flare now











Dude was like ''don't take a picture of me'' and i was like ''don't give yourself too much credit''




I made a mistake, Chemist. I believe this one is on Beijing Lu two blocks behind Plaza 66.

I can see the similarities.

The new crown looks pretty nice. I like the extra long point on the right hand side.

A touch of fantasy ?
If that thing is purely decorative, it may be abandonned some time during the construction.

I don't think that's what it is at all. Looks to me like the other side of the building is getting a very tall spire? *maybe I'm just smoking crack too...but that's what I'm seeing*

Looks weird. It wouldn't make any sense to put a small spire on only the right hand side of the crown I think.
Perhaps it's a spire, either in the middle of the crown or a taller on on the far side, like plinko wrote?

Yeah, plinko is right. I have a problem with two dimensions...hehe. The building is far to symmetrical to have some wild spire doing it's own thing on the right. I guess i was hoping for something a little on the crazy side.

This will be a great looking tower when it is completed.

Walked past it yesterday, but the nazi guard wouldn't let me snap a shot. He was a pretty big dick, actually.
The core looks to be on the third floor.

Plaza 66 is not very far.
I wonder which one will have the dominant presence in the area.

Plaza 66 consists of two large towers and will still dominate the Jing'An Temple/Nanjing Xi Lu area I think. Huamin King is a great addition though.


By the way, has anyone seen the "new" (?) illumination of Park Place's crown? It's amazing!

It will be interesting to see how it turns out, but it is located kind of on the edge of the district, close to the highway ("too close" to be able to be appreciated from there) and is pretty slim, as compared to Plaza 66 which consists of two pretty large towers.

It's a amazing area in any case. What about Kerry Center?

Judging by the surrounding buidings, I should have an excellent view of this from my window once it reaches a certain height...although, who knows how long that will be.
