Tallest structures in Shanghai.

The city of Shanghai, China is one of the fastest growing cities in the world in terms of skyscraper construction,[1] with the City of Shanghai reporting at the end of 2004 that there had been 6,704 buildings of 11 stories or more completed since 1990.[2] In 2011 there are over 20,000 buildings 11 stories or higher and more than 1,000 buildings exceeding 30 stories in Shanghai.[3] As of December 2011, there are 165 high-rise buildings either under construction, approved for construction, or proposed for construction, of which three are over 300 m (980 ft) high.[4] Since 2008, Shanghai has boasted more free-standing buildings above 400m (3) than any other city (except Chicago).[A]

Shanghai's first building boom occurred in the 1920s and 30s, during the city's heyday as a multinational center of business and finance.[5] The city's international concessions permitted foreign investment, and with it came architectural styles from the West, as seen today in areas such as the French Concession and the Bund.[6] After the Communist takeover in 1949 the city's development was stifled, punished for its earlier capitalist excesses.[7] After economic reforms beginning in the 1980s, the city is undergoing its second construction boom to fulfill its desire to regain its status as an important global financial center.[8]

The tallest skyscraper in Shanghai is the Shanghai World Financial Center, which is 492 m (1,614 ft) tall with 101 floors. It is currently the tallest building in the People's Republic of China and the third-tallest in the world.[9][10] The tallest building under construction is the Shanghai Tower; it will have a height of 632 m (2,073 ft) when completed, and consequently will be the tallest building in China and second tallest building in the world after the Burj Khalifa.[11]

A. ^ Since 2009 Chicago has 3 complete freestanding structures over 400m: Willis Tower 527m, John Hancock Center 457m, Trump International Hotel and Tower 423m.
B. ^ The Oriental Pearl Tower is not a habitable building, but is included in this list for comparative purposes. Per a ruling by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, freestanding observation towers are not considered to be buildings, as they are not fully habitable structures.
