This is a Hipmunk post from Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads.

Imagine a hotel that will be built into the side of a giant quarry, a 328 foot tall rockface of a cavern that used to hold water . That’s what is currently being built outside of Shanghai, China, which will also include a giant waterfall from the roof that pummels the floor below:

 

UK design firm Atkins, who won the bid to The Songjiang Hotel, notes that project will include extreme sports facilities, visitor centre and a five-star luxury hotel with some levels of the hotel situated under water.
