Shanghai Centre Building

John Portman & Associates is pleased to announce that Shanghai Center, a project designed more than 30 years ago, has received the “China Tall Building Legacy” award of the inaugural China Tall Building Award. This award recognizes proven value and performance during the period of time from China’s economic opening in 1978, giving the opportunity to reflect and acknowledge projects which have performed successfully and achieved sustainability at the highest and broadest level.

Jack Portman, Vice Chairman for both John Portman & Associates and the real estate development firm Portman Holdings, reflected on the firm’s win, saying, “Shanghai Centre shows the joint expertise of the two Portman firms to deliver beautifully innovative solutions that are also very pragmatic and feasible – the result of the ability to combine development vision with architectural creativity.”

Shanghai Centre was the firm’s first project in China, and not the only one recognized in these awards. Tomorrow Square, a 60-story tower also in Shanghai and also designed by John Portman & Associates, was cited for Honorable Distinction. The firm has worked in China for more than 30 years and has designed a number of prominent landmarks in Shanghai and Beijing as well as in second- and third-tier cities. Notable projects include Beijing Yintai Center and, currently under construction, Yinchuan Greenland Center.
