25 Tallest Buildings In The World

# 22. CITIC Plaza


Part of the Tien He development in Guangzhou, CITIC Plaza is the central gathering point for the area. The tower complex is at the focal point of a four-kilometer-long pivot of greenery enclosures and streets extending between Guangzhou East Railway Station, Guangzhou’s principal railroad station in the north, and Haixinsha Island toward the south. The symmetry of the CITIC Plaza development complements the formality of the surrounding urban axis, with the main tower being the first sight that visitors see as they emerge from the main railway station.
