The Shanghai Tower — the tallest building in China at 2,073 feet — has topped out and put the final beam in place, according to Thornton Tomasetti
, the engineering firm that is providing structural services for the building. Designed by architecture firm Gensler
and developed by the Shanghai Tower Construction and Development Company, building of the mixed-use, 4.1-million-square-foot structure began back in 2008 and it is scheduled for completion in 2014.
