Shanghai World Financial Center was invested more than USD 1 billion mainly by Mori Building Corporation, Japan and other over 40 corporations. It is close to Jinmao Tower, the second high building in Shanghai. The center is 492 meters high with 104 floors, including 3 floors underground.


The structure features 3 floors of underground parking, shops and a conference center on floors 1 through 5, offices on floors 7 through 77, a hotel managed by Hyatt Group located on floors 79 through 93, and finally observation and exhibition areas on floors 94 floor through 100 floor. To protect the building from the fierce winds, two tuned mass dampers were settledon 90th floors of Shanghai World Financial Center to reduce the building's sway during windstorms and earthquakes. There are three viewing platforms in 94th floor to 100th floor, of which the 94th floor functions as an exhibition ground with an viewing platform covering an area of 700 square meters, while the 97th functions as an overpass. On the 100th floor stands an viewing pavilion with 55 meters long, boasting the highest one of its kind in China. It is higher than viewing platform of Canadian TV Tower (447 meters overground) and Dubai Tower (440 meters overground), and it will be the highest viewing platform in the world.
