Drone footage shows £345million quarry hotel inching towards completion after 11 years


*. Work continues to build the InterContinental Shimao hotel in Songjiang district of Shanghai, east China


*. Complex has been designed by British-based firm Atkins and will have 370 guest rooms over 19 floors


*. Two floors will be underwater and boast a glass-walled aquarium and guest rooms for the Chinese elite


*. Due to open in 2018, the structure will blend in with the landscape thanks to eco-friendly, tree-lined roof.






It has been work in progress since 2006.

And, finally, it seems that the InterContinental Shimao hotel in Shanghai,China, is inching towards the first major stage of completion as new footage reveals.


Filmed by Asia's Pear Video, the most up-to-date scenes show the venue's exterior taking shape just six months ahead of the £345million resort's reported opening in May 2018.

After years of hard work from a team of 5,000 construction staff, the epic project is seen beginning to resemble the original artist's impression of the building, which was first unveiled in 2006.

Once completely shrouded with scaffolding and green safety netting, this is gradually being stripped away to showcase the balconies which will overlook an artificial lake.


Meanwhile, the floors that are set to be submerged underneath the imported water are also visible.



The resort will have several restaurants, guest rooms, swimming pool, sports centre, banqueting hall and conference facilities

The finsihed hotel will have an exact altitude of minus 87 yards and guest rooms will start at around £200(₦94,000) per night.

These Chinese are taking over.

94k per night isn't bad.

I will like a room among the two floors in the water.... the experience will be like that of a submarine.

Breaking boundaries is what these short men and women are known for while we keep reacting on social media.

Maybe it's time our government bans some social media like the Chinese Unity government

The chinese are supposed to be doing these kinds of investments in Nigeria and other african countries if not for leadership failures. They only come here to build basic infrastructure which is supposed to be one of the primary functions of govt. In south africa,chinese companies manufacture automobiles,power/high tech products unlike Nigeria. This pic depicts the kind of chinese investors in Nigeria.

Awesome piece of engineering! grin
The Chinese are really paying attention
to details.

It shows that the Great Wall of China built
centuries ago by the Chinese was no fluke!
Creativity runs in their blood.
