What ever the roof height is, it is shorter than plaza 66 by a lot. I have seen it from all angles. It is mighty tall tho. it is visible from all areas of the city.

Is there going to be retail in the podium? Possibly fronting onto Nanjing Road West?

Yea, there is a law in china that only people whose salary exceed 10,000USD can enter the cities centers (CBD). You given special ID in order to pass through the poll.

If you would walk 3km to the north of this tower to the slum areas, you see people drinking water from sewage, people peeing, pooing on streets.

Stunning design. Is this construction sight on the left the Kerry Center phase 2 does anyone know? Maybe I'm wrong but I thought it's due to be nearby here.

I don't know what it is, but definitely not Kerry Center.

If you have the google earth, the construction site is around 31°13'23.00" 121°26'11.00",
and I guess the photo was shot at 31°13'21.90" 121°26'9.15".

New office building will dwarf others on Shanghai's skyline
6 July 2010
China Daily - Hong Kong Edition

A top grade office tower called Wheelock Square has recently been completed in Puxi's Jing'an district in Shanghai.

Dave Siu, general manager of estates management (Shanghai) at Wharf China Estates Limited, a subsidiary of Wharf Holdings Limited said: "We have a long and proud history in Shanghai and are very pleased to be developing such a prominent site. Wheelock Square, a world-class property with world-class management, will enhance Shanghai's dynamic skyline and will redefine the landscape of this vibrant business district. The investment we've made in this project reaffirms our confidence in the business opportunities in China."

Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, the 270-m tall Wheelock Square is now the tallest commercial building in Puxi.

It has already captured the attention of numerous multi-national companies and has received interest from tenants keen to secure space in the building via the appointed Joint Marketing and Leasing Agents, CB Richard Ellis and Jones Lang LaSalle.

Committed tenants of Wheelock Square include the MNCs such as Bristol-Myers Squibb, Mitsui, Shiseido, Coach, LG Chem, Conde Nast and Clarkson Asia, as well as the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China. Among them, four are whole-floor tenants and one committed to three whole floors.

Anthony Couse, managing director of Jones Lang LaSalle (Shanghai), said: "Puxi office market is on the road to steady recovery. Many multinationals have started to re-evaluate their expansion plans on the back of a robust economy in China. It is also reflected by the increased level of enquiries in Wheelock Square."

The building has 46 typical office floors and 4 highly specified trading floors.

Tim O'Connor, senior director and head of office services at CB Richard Ellis (Shanghai), noted that office tenants are now placing greater emphasis on the quality and flexibility of office accommodation instead of rental cost alone when making decisions.

"Wheelock Square has been very favorably received and this is a testament to the quality of its design and technical infrastructure. Considerable interest has come from tenants wishing to upgrade their positions and planning their business for future growth," said O'Connor.

Wheelock Square integrates environmentally-friendly aspects with state-of-the-art design to create sophisticated modern architecture.

The building's glass facade will help maximize natural light penetration throughout the building. A high-speed lift system provides convenience for tenants.

Connected by a covered walkway, a two-level annex building on the south provides a range of places to eat and drink, while a four-storey annex building on the north houses luxury brands.

Wheelock Square is directly opposite Jing'an Temple Metro Station, which provides an efficient link to main city locations such as People's Square, Lujiazui and the Shanghai World Expo 2010 site.

It is also within easy walking distance of several hotels including the Portman Ritz-Carlton and Shanghai JC Mandarin Hotel. There are also banks, restaurants and international brands nearby.

Company profile

Wharf Holdings Limited, founded in 1886, is a subsidiary of Wheelock and Company Limited.

It has a strategic focus on property and infrastructure in Hong Kong and the Mainland.

Landmarks Harbour City and Times Square in Hong Kong represent about half of the group's total business assets.

Harbour City, the group's flagship property situated in the commercial hub of Tsim Sha Tsui, is Hong Kong's largest shopping, dining and entertainment center.

The 780,000 sq m commercial complex comprises top quality offices, retail shops, serviced apartments, hotels and a club, and approximately 2,000 car parking spaces.

The 186,000 sq m Times Square in Causeway Bay has prime retail space and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Hong Kong.

The group also operates a diversified business portfolio in Hong Kong, including property investment and development, hotel ownership and management, logistics, communications, media and entertainment, and transportation.

The group has a land bank of development and investment properties covering a total of more than 9 million sq m, in many major cities such as Shanghai, Chongqing, Wuhan, Dalian, Chengdu, Suzhou, Wuxi, Hangzhou, Changzhou and Tianjin.
