Shimao International Plaza is a 333.3 m (1,094 ft) tall skyscraper of 60 stories in Shanghai's Huangpu District. It was completed in 2005 under the design of Ingenhoven, Overdiek und Partner, East China Architecture and Design Institute.

Shimao International Plaza has two spires on its top, which make its total construction height to 333.3 metres. The building is used for offices, while the top 48 floors house the five-star, ultra-luxurious Le Royal Méridien Shanghai hotel. The building also includes a 9 floor shopping mall.

Shanghai Shimao Group bought the original developer of the tower, Wan Xiang Group, in 2001 and the name of the building was changed.
