Shanghai Tower is a 574,000-square-meter skyscraper encompassing office, hotel, entertainment, retail and cultural venues, and providing 360-degree views of Shanghai. The property achieved LEED® Gold pre-certification and accolades from the China Green Building Three-Star rating certification for its energy-saving design that maximizes daylight. The developer sought international expertise in the operation and management of a world-class tower to maintain its iconic status and attract top-flight tenants.
CBRE assembled a global team with expertise in buildings of comparable scale and complexity to advise the client on operational best practices, including marketing, lease agreements, operating procedures and protocols, and staff training. CBRE also consulted on sustainability, building mechanical systems, technical specifications and engineering, to ensure Shanghai Tower meets the dynamic expectations of both international and domestic tenants and maintains its integrity as a Class A building going forward. During the process, CBRE established a China Center of Excellence, a dedicated virtual hub so that professionals in different time zones and regions of the world could communicate seamlessly and align their assignments.
