Shun Hing Square (Chinese: 信兴广场), also named "Diwang Building" (Chinese: 地王大厦) in Shenzhen, is a 384-metre-tall (1,260 ft) skyscraper in Shenzhen, Guangdong province, China.

It is currently the second tallest in Shenzhen, 9th tallest building in mainland China, and the 17th tallest in the world, in addition to being the tallest building in the world with fewer than 70 floors. It was the tallest building in China from its completion in 1996 until CITIC Plaza in Guangzhou was completed in 1997. It was also the first skyscraper in China to be one of the ten tallest in the world (Bank of China Tower and Central Plaza, of Hong Kong, were constructed while Hong Kong was still a part of the British Empire).[3] The building was built at the fast pace of four floors in nine days. The main tower has offices, while an accompanying 35-floor annex contains apartments, car park and shopping arcade complex which has 5 floors, four sets of escalators, five passenger lifts and two service lifts, and a floor area ranging from 3450 m2 to 4900 m2. On the top floor is the Meridian View Centre, an observation deck.[3][4]

In September 2011, Shun Hing Square became the second tallest building in Shenzhen (title held since 1996) when the nearby Kingkey 100, at 441.8 metres (1,449 ft), overtook Shun Hing Square in height.
