Mandarin Oriental just announced it will open a hotel in Shanghai. Here's the press release

Mandarin Oriental Announces New Luxury Hotel In Shanghai

Quote:
Mandarin Oriental Pudong, Shanghai will be located in the heart of the Lujiazui Central Financial District. The property will form part of ‘Harbour City’ a 25 hectare mixed use development, comprising office towers, a residential complex, significant retail and extensive landscaped gardens that will transform the neighbourhood. The development is within walking distance of the Shanghai Stock Exchange, the regional headquarters of major domestic and international financial institutions, and has direct access to the promenade on the banks of the Huangpu River.

I don't really think there is one that looks like arc de trompe mate. All of the towers in Pudong, with the exception of PingAn, are ultra modern. Can you point it out in a picture or something?

There were plans for a building next to these that looked a bit like two of the arch in la defense intertwined with each other. I don't think there has been any follow up to it yet.

Yup, that is the one. I remember there was a youtube video for that. I just couldn't find that here. BTW, is there a name for that building?

Sweet pic. My first impression of these towers was they looked "silly". But they turned out great in the end.

I found the video for the proposal for the plot next to these twins - at the moment it's just called Shanghai Shipyard Phase II.

I really like the design of these towers - the cladding is especially good. This side of Lujiazui, what with these and Jasper Tower amongst others, keeps getting better and better!

Thanks. The CITIC Pacific HQ & Mandarin Oriental are looking lovely. It will be like a gate to Shanghai Shipyard Phase II buildings.
The design of the cladding is like coming out from 70's. However, it does bring out the shape "()" in between quite well. They're truly nice twins.

Judging from the cladding, the fire took place recently.
