China World Tower 3

China World Tower 3 nearing completionWith the main structure complete, the media has given a lot of attenti   on to Rem Koolhaas’ CCTV tower . We’re more interested in China World Tower 3, the newest addition to Beijing’s first high-end office complex scheduled for completion this year. The first buildings were completed way back in 1990.

It’s meant to overtake faded Jinguang as Beijing’s tallest building at 380m high with an auspicious 68 floors. Typical of Robert Kuok’s people to keep it all low-key despite its prominence on the skyline. Hadeed & Koolhaas’ Beijing edifices may get pride of place in the glossy books but China World will be the premier office address. Why? Functional design, quality materials & maintenance.
