Located in the Pudong district of Shanghai, the Jin Mao Tower is indeed a sight to behold. The seventh tallest building in the world by pinnacle height, the Jin Mao Tower is best explored while staying at a Shanghai serviced residence such as Somerset Xu Hui Shanghai known to be one of the best Shanghai executive apartments available in the area. This magnificent tower containing mainly offices and the Shanghai Grand Hyatt hotel is a beautiful sight glittering in the distance at night. Designed by the Chicago office of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, this postmodern building draws inspiration from traditional Chinese architecture where like a tiered pagoda, its complexity rises as it ascends, creating a rhythmic pattern as it rises up to the sky.
