Shenzhen Stock Exchange by OMA Tops Out
June 30, 2010

OMA Rem Koolhaas Shenzhen Stock ExchangeThe Shenzhen Stock Exchange (SSE) – designed by OMA as the new home for China’s equivalent of the NASDAQ exchange for hi-tech industries – topped out at 246 metres. The building is remarkable not only for its height: with a raised podium suspended 36 metres over a public plaza and projecting 54 metres from the tower base, the Shenzhen Stock Exchange has one of the largest cantilevers in the world.
SSE officials, Shenzhen Mayor Xu Qin and Shenzhen Vice-mayors Lu Ruifeng and Chen Yingchun, joined Pritzker Prize-winning architect Rem Koolhaas of OMA at a ceremony on 26th June at the construction site. Koolhaas commented: "We are extremely happy and honoured to have the opportunity to create here a building that can be both subtle and staggering at the same time."
Façade construction has already begun on the tower’s 46 floors, and the building is scheduled for completion in August 2011.
