The building's gently rising and curving form resembles an ancient Chinese ceremonial vessel, called a "zun," which was the inspiration for the tower's name.


Construction started on the building in July 2013, and it will have seven floors underground and 108 floors above ground once completed. The pouring of concrete for 50 floors has been completed and the structure has reached 267 meters in height.

Located in Chaoyang District's central business area, the building aims to become Beijing's new landmark structure, towering over the China World Trade Center Tower 3 by 198 meters.

Zhu Min, the manager of the engineering department of the building, said it took three and a half days to build one floor.

He also said the tower would be ready for use in October 2018.

When completed, the tower will house office space, hotel accommodation, a high-end shopping mall and offer state-of-the-art facilities.

It also claims to be the world's first skyscraper higher than 500 meters tall and able to withstand a magnitude-eight earthquake.
