Nanjing Greenland Financial Center – Tallest in Nanjing, China

Posted by Jae on November 30, 2009

Nanjing Greenland Financial Center

The Nanjing Greenland Financial Center (also known as the Greenland Square Zifeng Tower) is a 450 m tall skyscraper (official height is taller than the Sears/Willis Tower in Chicago) currently topped out in Nanjing, China with completion expected in 2009 and being opened for business early 2010.

The 89-story building will feature office space and retail space in the lower section, restaurants and a public observatory near the top (72nd floor – 287 m above the ground), and will be topped off with a spire.  This observation deck will provide an unobstructed, panoramic view of Nanjing and the nearby Yangtze River, two lakes and the Ningzheng Ridge mountains.

The mixed-use tower which overlooks Xuanwu Lake became the second tallest building in China (behind the Shanghai World Financial Center and ahead of 2 International Financial Center in Hong Kong) and the 5th tallest building in the world when topped out.
