Cloud Nine is a 58-floor 238 metre (781 foot) tall skyscraper, with a shopping mall at its base, completed in 2006 located in western Shanghai, China.


The building is primarily a shopping mall at the lower levels. It is also known as Shanghai Summit Shopping City[1] or Cloud Nine Shopping Mall.[2] The mall is home to many multinational retailers such as Uniqlo, C&A, and H&M, and is also connected to a Renaissance Hotel. At night the skyscraper is lit by floodlights attached to the outside walls.

Cloud Nine is located in western Shanghai, near Zhongshan Park. The park itself is just to the north and to the north of that is Suzhou Creek.

The shopping mall's English and Chinese names are unrelated: its Chinese name is 龙之梦购物中心 ("Dragon's Dream Shopping Center").[3]

An accident with an escalator in August 2015 resulted in the amputation of a man's leg.[4]


The Cloud Nine shopping mall and skyscraper are immediately northeast of the Zhongshan Park Station on Shanghai Metro Line 2, Line 3, and Line 4. It can be seen from Lines 3 and 4, which are elevated at this point.
