The Shanghai World Financial Center is a supertall skyscraper located in the Pudong district of Shanghai, China. It was designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and developed by Mori Building. It is a mixed-use skyscraper, consisting of offices, hotels, conference rooms, observation decks, and ground-floor shopping malls. Park Hyatt Shanghai is the hotel component, containing 174 rooms and suites. Occupying the 79th to the 93rd floors, it is the second-highest hotel in the world, surpassing the Grand Hyatt Shanghai on the 53rd to 87th floors of the neighboring Jin Mao Tower.
On 14 September 2007, the skyscraper was topped out, at 492.0 meters (1,614.2 ft) making it the second-tallest building in the world and the tallest structure in the People's Republic of China at the time. It will be exceeded in height by the nearby Shanghai Tower, due for completion in 2014. It also had the highest occupied floor and the highest height to roof, two categories used to determine the title of "world’s tallest building".
The SWFC opened on 28 August 2008, with its observation deck opening two days later. This observation deck, currently the world's tallest, offers views from 474 m (1,555 ft) above ground level.
