Gensler’s Shanghai Tower – 2nd Tallest Building in the World

On my list of places to visit some day… We were in Hong Kong last summer but did not have a chance to see its progress in person.

What if I told you I almost had a chance to work on the Gensler Asia marketing team for the Shanghai Tower? One can dream. I was a Marketing Manager for HOK (architecture) in London with over 230 employees. Architecture is one of my passions.

Gensler, the largest architecture firm in the world (with headquarters in San Francisco, California), is building the Shanghai Tower, the tallest building in Asia at 632 meters (2073 feet), second tallest in the world, and tallest sustainable building in the world. The elevator will be 40 mph as it goes up to the top floor.
