From Forbes:

Soho China, the Beijing real estate developer whose billionaire founders have been associated with some of China’s most stylish buildings, formally opened its latest structure designed by award-winning architect Zaha Hadid in Shanghai on Saturday.

Sky Soho takes its inspiration in part from a nearby transportation center on the western side of the city, and resembles four high-speed rail cars interconnected by sky bridges.

Soho said in September that it sold 100,167 square meters of space in the project to online travel firm Ctrip for a consideration of 3 billion yuan, or $488 million.  Soho will keep the remaining 128,130 square meters as investment property.

Soho’s other Hadid-designed projects are Galaxy Soho and Wanjing Soho, both located in Beijing.

Zhang Xin and her family ranked No. 30 on the Forbes China Rich List veiled last week with a fortune worth $3.7 billion.
