The Suzhou Zhongnan Center will be a 729-meter-tall building, containing 375,000 square meters of gross floor area across 137 floors, containing retail, restaurants, entertainment functions, offices, luxury apartments, a seven-star hotel, and an observatory. Its extreme height, difficult soil conditions, and widely varied program make it a building of virtually unprecedented scale and scope, even within China. This requires an advanced level of thinking beyond typical tall building planning, design and construction.
