The Shanghai World Financial Centre (SWFC), Shanghai, China is now the tallest structure in the country.
In June it passed the previous record holder, its neighbour, the 420.5 m high Jin Mao Tower.
When complete later this year the US$ 1.1 billion SWFC will be 492 m high.
The 377300 m2 tower is being built by a consortium of China State Construction Engineering and Shanghai General Construction Group.
Kohn Pedersen Fox is design architect and Leslie E. Robertson Associates is the structural designer.
