Yes, a truly impressive entrance!

Is that a long fountain across the drop-off street from the main entrance?

I would think that a tower this impressive would have a supa nice real wood/timber finish in its entrance

More like copper or wood. Since copper isn't cool enough I guess it's the wood we're dealing with.

Not a typo then? I mean I have been to the website and it contradicts itself I'll paste what is written.

"Located at the core of Beijing’s new 30-hectare central business district, CITIC Tower will be the area’s crown jewel, and the second tallest building in Northern China once completed in 2018.
The design of the 528-meter tall office tower draws inspiration from the form of a traditional Chinese ritualistic artifact, the ‘zun’. KPF abstracts and refines this form, balancing design and articulation with structural requirements and leasing depth needs. The tower shape expresses the distinctive curvature of the ‘zun’ with an elegant sense of proportion. In plan, the tower is square with rounded corners. Its width transforms vertically from its 78-meter-wide base to its 54-meter-wide “waist” to its 69-meter-wide top.

CITIC Tower contains the headquarters for CITIC Group and CITIC Bank, as well as tenant occupied office space, an observation deck, and a business club.

LOCATION
Beijing, China

SIZE

Strange, maybe they mean 538m with the parapet, and a structural hight with 528m
