Starting at Puxi’s North Bund ... SOM is building White Magnolia Plaza, a 4.3 million-square-foot project on a 14-acre site behind the Shanghai International Cruise Terminal.
Two towers dominate the mixed-use complex. One has already reached its full height of 563 feet and will be home to Shanghai’s first W Hotel, slated to open in June 2015. The taller office tower is expected to top out this September. At 66 stories and 1,048 feet, it will dominate its relatively low-rise neighborhood.
