Beijing's Tallest Skyscraper Grows Higher
Quote:

In March, the first pieces of glazing that had begun installation on Kohn Pedersen Fox's huge China Zun Tower in Beijing. The following months have seen substantial progress on both cladding placement and floor assembly, as the supertall skyscraper for state-owned investment company CITIC rapidly rises towards its 528-metre pinnacle.

Beijing's Tallest Building Highlighted in Construction Images
Quote:

Beijing's tallest building continues to flaunt its excessive height, as recent photos sent to us by architect Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates highlight the supertall's striking curvature and textured cladding system. The China Zun Tower, also known as the CITIC Tower after its primary tenant, will climb to a height of 528 metres across 108 floors.

Rising High Above Beijing, a Security Puzzle
By Dominique Fong
Sept. 29, 2017 5:30 a.m. ET

BEIJING—Construction at the top of the tallest building in China’s capital has stalled because of government security concerns, according to people involved in its design and construction, in a new example of how China’s passion for skyscrapers is cooling.

Government officials have halted work on the planned observation deck on China Zun Tower’s 106th floor because of concerns that visitors would be able to see into the compound where Communist Party leaders live and work, according to the people involved.

The security push goes beyond China Zun. The city said on Wednesday that it would limit the height of buildings in its center—offering no details but citing the need to “safeguard the security of the central-government environment.” The plan includes the district where China Zun sits . . .

. . . while China once gushed over trophy towers—including ones shaped like eggs, coins and teapots—that helped put its fast-growing megacities on the world map, their popularity has waned.

Mr. Xi in late 2014 issued a call to stop the construction of “strange-looking” buildings.

The cladding is about to reach the top.

Is it just me or is Mr. Underpants looking a bit rusty?

The fact that the President had to say "stop constructing strange looking buildings" is hilarious. Generally speaking, the building of supertalls in areas where the highest adjacent buildings barely reach 1000 feet has always been odd to me but in this case, Beijing deserves a supertall of this magnitude. Hands down my favorite development of supertalls has to be Moscow. They absolutely nailed building development with what they have done at the Moscow International Business Center. None of it existed before 2000

The Xbox 360 tower, looks awful.

Wrekt Dec 18, 2017 10:46 PM

I think it looks pretty clean, and besides it's obvious height compared to what is around it, the top 30% of the building kind of makes it stand out. I think this building would great in a city like Houston, LA, or San Francisco.
