I think they're offices of the Agricultural Bank of China. That horror was the very first project completed in the Zhujiang Xincheng CBD. It looked so lonely back in 2003, in the middle of a grass sea.

Man, I understand the need to advertise your building for tenants. But a big giant phone number at the top is just tacky.

What a transformation! I also love the pictures comparing parts of Shanghai from the mid-90's to today.

This strip will be one of the best pieces of urban landscaping when it's done, the kind that's only possible where a city centre area is built more or less from scratch over a few decades. Impossible for most cities which develop slowly and more haphazardly over centuries. Really looking forward to when it's finished.
