SHANGHAI | Hotel in 65m Deep Quarry | 21 fl | U/C

A five star hotel will be built in a -65 meter pit in TianMaShan, Shanghai.
21F (2 floors below water, 2 floors on the ground)
from -65m to 15m
with various entertainment and sports facilities.


The pit once was a quarry, and then a trash field.


Three years ago, the enviroment was improved, and this year the construction will begin.

Unique project, but I like how the quarry looks right now to be honest.

Looks similar to the plans of turning Malmo's old limestone quarry into a huge new city burrough, with buildings a long the sides and so on.

Looks cool.

It looks really cool, but it would have been even cooler if it was on the coastline or a lake or something, then with a marina in the basement, yeah that would be even cooler!
