Beijing’s Tallest Skyscraper Z15 Tower Is Expected To Be Completed In 2017
Yet another tallest skyscraper construction is in progress in Beijing, which is designed by TFP Farrells. Z15 tower is expected to be completed in 2017.
Z15 Tower Details :
The tower consists of 108 floors along with another seven underground. It has completed its concrete pouring for the first 40 floors including 7 underground floors. It’s height will be 528 meters in total and become the tallest skyscraper in Beijing which will be towering over China World Summit Wing by 198 meters. It’s height will be almost double as the Titanic ship was long. Z15 Tower looks like Chinese Zun.
Just as most tall buildings in Beijing end up with public-generated nicknames, such as the CCTV Tower ("ThePants"), the National Center for Performing Arts ("The Egg") and the National Stadium ("The Bird's Nest"), the Chinese press is already calling Z15 Tower "the Chinese Zun (中国尊)." In accordance with the classical Chinese ‘ zun’ is a wine vessel, used more than 2,000 years ago.
When completed, instead of being filled with Grace Vineyards goodness, there will be 2 million square meters of office space over 60 floors, 20 floors of six-star hotel accommodation, with 300 rooms and state-of-the-art facilities, 20 floors of luxury apartments, and a high-end shopping mall connected to the Beijing Subway. It will also have art galleries and a rooftop garden.
After its completion next year, Z15 tower will join the 10 tallest buildings in the world, nudging aside Taipei 101 by 20 meters, and becoming one of six buildings in China that are among the world's highest.
