Opening ceremonies were held 2 November 2020 for the Nanning China Resources Center Tower, developed by CR Land and designed by Goettsch Partners (GP). At 402.7 meters (1,321 feet), the new supertall is located in the regional capital city of Nanning in Southern China, where it is also that city’s tallest building.

The 87-story mixed-use tower rises with a tapered, stepped form reflecting its varied uses, including more than 170,000 square meters of office space, nearly 6,000 square meters of retail, and a 336-key Shangri-La hotel. Clad entirely in high-performance glass and designed to LEED-CS Gold standards, the tower’s integrated sunshades control solar gain while offering floor-to-ceiling views and admitting ample daylight inside. 

The opening of the tower marks the tallest completed building to-date designed by GP.
