Soon, the dream of Shanghai’s extravagant Shimao Wonderland InterContinental Quarry Hotel will be a reality.
Who would have imagined that this abandoned quarry in Shanghai’s Songjiang district…
…could become something as magnificent as this?
After more than six years of construction, the ambitious luxury resort is finally beginning to look like its highly imaginative concept art.
Many of China’s previous architectural innovations have been skyscrapers that soared to impossible heights. This time patrons will have to go low to live the high life. The quarry is 80 meters deep and will boast 380 rooms on 19 floors. Two of these floors will be underwater!
Developers are aiming to complete the hotel before the middle of this year, but there is still much more work to be done.
The Shimao Wonderland InterContinental Quarry Hotel is expected to host around 500,000 visitors annually and will offer activities that take advantage of its unique location. This includes rock climbing, water sports, and more daring past times — like bungee jumping from the quarry’s cliffs!
