About Zifeng Tower
Zifeng Tower (formerly known as Nanjing Greenland Financial Center) is a mixed-use complex comprising of several buildings resting on two sites, parcels A1 and A2. Parcel A1 contains a podium connecting two towers. The taller 450m (1,476ft) tower consists of offices and hotels, and the 100m (328ft) tower contains purely office space. The shape and placement of the buildings are designed to echo the geometry of the existing roads and maximize exterior views of the city. The buildings' composition maintains the east-west viewing corridors along East Beijing Road and provides a visual link to the nearby historical drum and bell towers. Read more.
