Yesterday Nanjing's tallest building officially opened, under the jazzy name of the Zifeng Tower. It is just 5 minutes away from our pad so we went to check it out. It is 1,480 ft tall and was built by the same architects as those who worked on the world's tallest building, the Birj Khalifa, in Dubai. It has a shopping centre on the first six floors, many many office floors and then the rather suave Intercontinental Hotel towards the top. It also has a viewing platform on the 72nd floor, which we will be investigating around Christmas/Boxing day as a super dooper treat.
Inside the building isn't as impressive sadly. The shopping centre is half finished, with plaster still muddying up the otherwise shiny walls, and the job just doesn't look done. One of the lifts' buttons were actually only half stuck to the walls, and I think I could have done a better job with the tiles and plastering... shame. Everything here only ever seems to be half completed.
Pretty festive if you ask me.
