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

Background[edit]

The building was built at a pace of four floors in nine days. The main tower is of office space, while an accompanying 120-metre-tall, 35-floor annex contains apartments, a car park and a 5-storey shopping arcade complex, 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] Its common nickname "Diwang Building" derives from the auction price for the piece of land it stands being the most expensive in Shenzhen at the time. 24,500 tonnes of steel were used in construction.
