Well, yeah! According to the website World's Tallest Buildings, two of the top ten (Shanghai World Financial Center [492 m.] and the Jin Mao Tower [420.5 m.]) can be found in Shanghai, a third is located in Hong Kong (International Commerce Center [484 m.], and a fourth stands right here in Nanjing, the Zifeng Tower (also known as the Greenland Financial Center). Completed in 2010, the Zifeng Tower, a design of SOM (Skidmore, Owings and Merrill) comes in at 450 meters, just a tad shorter than the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur. Situated on the large roundabout by Nanjing's Gulou (Bell Tower), the Zifeng Tower is visible from everywhere on the Nanjing University Campus.
But the tower is far from the only tall building in Nanjing; everywhere, it seems, old Nanjing is giving way to ever bigger, taller buildings. Even adjacent to the university campus—at the intersection of Guangzhou Lu and Zhongshan Lu a couple of tall buildings rise to house fancy retail establishments.
