Date: September 28, 2016

In August 28, 2016, the 452 meters skyscraper rises in the business district of Changsha City, in Hunan Province. China’s rapid economic development has led to a boom in the construction of skyscrapers. The super high-rises under construction in China accounts for more than 80% of the world’s total. This 452 meters newly completed skyscraper is the Changsha International Financial Center, designed by Wong Tung and Partners. Consists of two super high-rise towers and ancillary podium, with a total area of 102.2 million square meters, equivalent to twice the size of the world’s first high-rise towers. Tower 1 alone consists of 60,000 tons of steel, 200,000 cubic meters of concrete and 110,000 square meters of glass curtain wall, weighing up to 620,000 tons. To have accomplished such project as the Changsha IFC certainly reflects the region’s “high level architectural skills, science, technology, and economic strength”.
