Soaring to a height of 492m with 101 above-ground floors,SWFC is the world’s tallest mixed-use urban development project.
Within Shanghai’s Pudong New Area, the Shanghai World Financial Center is positioned at the very heart of the Lujiazui Finance and Trade Zone, an area with the potential to develop into a major Asian center of international finance and trade.
Facing Century Avenue, a 100-meter-wide boulevard running through the center of the zone, this premier location also overlooks the 100,000-square-meter Shanghai Central Park.
This area, lined by a large number of high-rise buildings, with even more under construction, is fast becoming home to a dense concentration of tenants that include government agencies, various securities and commodities exchanges, and leading banks and trading companies.
The site provides tenants access to a remarkable transportation and urban infrastructure, including the Shanghai Pudong International Airport, an international hub airport.
SWFC has 101 stories with a height of 492 meters.
The building’s innovative, symbolic profile was designed by Kohn Pederson Fox Associates (KPF) of New York, architects renowned around the world for their work on high-rise buildings.
The logomark of Shanghai World Financial Center (SWFC) symbolizes its role as a place that attracts people and information and radiates with the flow of their energy. The incorporation of the character of “上” in Shanghai (上海) at the intersection of lines signifies SWFC’s deep roots in the city. The overall design embodies SWFC’s commitment to not only economic and cultural advance but also the improvement of quality of life as an attractive place where people and information resonate.
