Shanghai's landmark buildings the Oriental Pearl Tower, the Jin Mao Building, and the Shanghai World Financial Center located in Pudong District. These buildings were built to be the tallest in China but each eclipsed the previous structure in height. Now these buildings will be dwarfed by the construction of the new Shanghai Tower. The new building will be finished in 2014 with 121 floors . . . and be the 2nd tallest building in the world.
