Shimao International Plaza (Chinese: 上海世茂国际广场) is a 333.3 m (1,094 ft) tall skyscraper of 60 stories in Shanghai's Huangpu District. It was completed in 2006 under the design of Ingenhoven, Overdiek und Partner, East China Architecture and Design Institute.

Shimao International Plaza has two spires on its top, which make its total construction height to 333.3 metres. Most of the building (the upper 48 floors) houses the five-star, ultra-luxurious Le Royal Méridien Shanghai hotel with 770 rooms. The building also includes a 9 floor shopping mall and 3 floors of exclusive clubs.

Shanghai Shimao Group bought the original developer of the tower, Wan Xiang Group, in 2001 and the name of the building was changed.
