Published on Jun 23, 2011
The design of the Wuhan Greenland Center, which will become the world’s third tallest building upon completion, has been revealed. Designed by AS+GG Architecture - the company that created Dubai’s Burj Khalifa - the new megastructure in central China will rise 606 metres above the streets of Wuhan, with the outer walls curving inward and meeting at a point at the top. The CNY5 billion (US$772 million) tower will take five years to complete and will house a luxury hotel, as well as office space, and residential and retail areas.
