  • Soaring 632 meters above the financial heart of China, Shanghai Tower is the second tallest building in the world.

    以 632 公尺的高度聳立在中國的金融中心,上海中心大廈是世界上第二高的建築。

  • The striking structure features incredibly fast elevators, is home to our planet’s highest observation deck and claims to be the world’s most sustainable mega-tall skyscraper.


  • But despite its status as one of modern China’s most iconic mega projects and its ambition to be a crowning symbol of the country’s economic growth,


  • Shanghai Tower has been plagued with challenges.


  • This is how one of the world’s tallest and most important skyscrapers failed.


  • Plans for Shanghai Tower date back to 1993.

    上海中心大廈的營建計畫最早可以追溯到 1993 年。

  • When economic reforms were introduced in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the cityscape of Shanghai began to rapidly transform.

    在經濟改革開放於 1980 年代末與 1990 年代初開始時,上海的市容開始急速變遷。

  • To accommodate the demand for office spaceand to put the city on the world stage as China’s financial capital—a cluster of three eye-catching supertall skyscrapers were planned.


  • The Jin Mao Building, the first of this trio, was completed in 1999 and was followed nearly a decade later by the Shanghai World Financial Center.

    於 1999 年完工的金茂大廈是三座大樓中的第一座,而在將近十年之後,上海環球金融中心也跟著落成。

  • But Shanghai Tower was always intended to be the jewel in the crown.


  • Backed by a consortium of state-owned developers and primarily funded by Shanghai’s municipal government, work on the $2.4 billion tower first commenced in 2008.

    在國有的開發商所組成的財團支持,並主要由上海市政府出資下,這個耗資 24 億美元的大樓興建計畫在 2008 年開始動工。

  • Eight years and 128 stories later, the twisting structure completed, stunning the world with its scale and unusual form

    經過 8 年,築起了 128 層樓之後,這個扭曲的建築興建完成了,以它巨大的尺寸與非凡的造型驚艷了全世界

  • while making the skyscraper superblock one of the densest places on Earthwith more than a million square meters of real estate on offer.


  • Sitting so close together, these towers invite comparison.


  • Each one sets a monumental record, only to be dramatically outdone by its successor.


  • But since its opening in 2016, Shanghai Tower has faced a myriad of problemsmost notably an astonishingly low occupancy rate.

    但自從於 2016 年開張以來,上海中心大廈便面對了數不盡的問題。其中最顯著的便是其入駐率低得驚人。

  • Until as recently as 2018, the building was half empty.

    直到 2018 年的最近,該建築仍有一半是空的。

  • The spaces that were leased were let to domestic corporationsand only 30 percent of those had actually been able to move in.

    租出去的辦公空間都是由本國的公司所承租,而其中只有百分之 30 真的進駐了進去。

  • The much sought-after multinationals were even more reluctant to sign leases.


  • There were several reasons for this.


  • Firstly, bureaucratic red tape and safety concerns from the local fire authorities, who were concerned at the building’s immense height,


  • meant that it took several years for the tower to gain its full fire certifications.


  • With operating losses soaring, the tower ran more than $1.5 billion into debt.

    隨著營運虧損的飆升,大樓擔負了超過 15 億美元的債務。

  • Secondly, the building’s twisting glass façadeideal for offsetting wind loadscreated an impractical floorplate, forcing tenants to pay for large areas of unusable floor space.


  • Site inspectors found that, on most levels, just 50 percent of the floor space was used efficiently.

    工地的檢查員發現在大多數的樓層上,都只有效利用了百分之 50 的樓面積。

  • Shanghai Tower’s low occupancy rate is painfully obvious at night, when half the tower fails to light up.


  • This is partly due to extended delays around the luxury J-Hotel that has been due to open on the tower’s upper floors for many years.

    其中部分原因也得歸咎於本來早該在高樓層開張的 J 酒店,延宕多年的結果。

  • Shanghai Tower’s world-class sustainability credentials, which earned it LEED Platinum certification, were in fact a key part of its commercial strategy.

    上海中心大廈世界級的環保永續認證使得它贏得了 LEED 白金標章,並且實際上是它商業策略的關鍵部分。

  • Investors are always looking for ways to lower the maintenance and energy costs of supertall buildings,


  • while rent for LEED certified structures can be up to 30 percent higher because of their desirable green-status.

    而具有 LEED 標章的建築甚至能夠因為這樣的綠能身分,以最多百分之 30 以上的價格出租空間。

  • As such, the tower boasts over 40 energy-saving techniques, including 200 wind turbines at its summit providing 10 percent of its power,

    更確切的說,該大樓以 40 項節能技術為傲,其中包含了頂部具有 200 座風力發電渦輪來提供大樓百分之 10 的電力消耗、

  • a dual-layered glass skin that naturally cools and ventilates the building interior, and a rainwater recycling system.


  • But these measures did little to attract tenants in the tower’s early years, and in addition to the problems outlined earlier,


  • Shanghai Tower found itself completing at an unsettling time for the Chinese economy.


  • With commercial occupancy rates across the city falling, the tower was asking tenants to pay expensive rents when they were looking for bargains.


  • Even the International Monetary Fund (IMF) noted the lack of competent commercial decision making from China in its construction projects.

    就連國際貨幣基金組織 (IMF) 都注意到了中國在投資建設項目時,對於商業上的決策考量不足的問題。

  • No private company in the world could build a tower this wildly expensive but lease so little of it.


  • Despite pushing the very limits of engineering and being widely praised for its design that has undoubtedly made it an iconic symbol of China,


  • Shanghai Tower has seemingly fallen short of becoming a monument to the country’s economic success, standing instead as quite the opposite.
