The 1,739-foot (530 m) tall beast was completed in October 2016. It is the tallest completed building in Guangzhou, the third-tallest in China, and the seventh-tallest in the world. The Guangzhou CTF Finance Centre has a total of 111 above ground and five below ground floors and houses a shopping mall, offices, apartments, and a hotel. The skyscraper has a gross floor area of 5,464,633 square feet (507,681.0 m2), of which a little over 20% is not part of the skyscraper itself, but of the podium connected to it.
The form of the 38-storey residential blocks, while unique to high-rise towers in KL, is actually a composition of standardised floor plates for the units – albeit stacked in a manner where every floor is incrementally adjusted outward or inward in groups of eight.
