Six years after completing the restoration of several historic colonial buildings in central Shanghai, the final piece of the development, a tower on the southern fringes of the site, has topped out. The tower is the only substantial new addition to the historic ensemble and rises from the 1897 Andrews & George building, adding eleven storeys above the three-storey listed façade. Clad in red brick, it refers to the urban fabric of the colonial buildings while its height mediates between the historic Bund and the high-rise city beyond.
