Look at this Beijing tower. It is side by side.

The Strategy of Shangri-La

Shangri-la wants to be one of the first 5 star hotels in many places, and they reserved enough land for expansion. When the time is ready, they build the second tower. The two towers are at different price – the newer one is more expensive, much more expensive.

  1. I stayed at the Pudong Shangri-La while in Shanghai Christmas of 2000.

    A very memorable experience.

  2. interesting. Shangri-La is currently constructing a hotel/residences in Vancouver and when it’s finished it will be the largest building in the city.
