BEIJING | China World Trade Center Phase 3B | 288m | 945ft | 58 fl | Com

China World Trade Centre Phase 3B (next to the Phase 3 Building, which is currently the tallest building in Beijing) by SOM.

Ground will be broken on Wednesday, May 9, 2012 for Skidmore Owing & Merrill LLP (SOM)’s newest building at Beijing’s China World Trade Center (CWTC) complex. The 58-story Phase 3B Tower features sleek horizontal bands of canted glass that wrap the building’s square floor plates. The 918-feet (280-meters) tall icon will be located immediately northeast of the 74-story, SOM-designed China World Trade Center Tower 3, completed in 2010—which is the tallest building in the Chinese capital. More images and complete press release after the break.

“The form is evocative,” SOM Design Partner Brian Lee says. “It could be a bamboo shoot or a pagoda, but it’s driven by practical issues.” The exterior curtain wall is 3 degrees off vertical to make the fašade self-cleaning in Beijing’s dirty air. The cant decreases glare to occupants and the reflection of light results in an 8 percent reduction in energy loads.

The new CWTC Tower 3B will have 1.32-million-square-feet (123,000-square-meters), comprising offices, a 600-room hotel and associated amenities. The structure is a steel and concrete composite system using a reinforced concrete core with composite moment frame columns. The building is designed to achieve LEED™ Gold certification.

Chinese News about the Ground-breaking Ceremony Today

北京国贸三期工程B阶段开工 国贸大饭店将拆除重建

中广网北京5月9日消息(记者赵巍)5月9日上午,中国国际贸易中心举办三期B阶段工程开工仪式。中国国贸中心股份有限公司总经理助理孙宏伟表示,国贸三期B阶段的工程,高度将达到220米左右,总投资与A阶段相当。项目预计三到四年完成,工程主体的建筑商招标将在下半年开始。而在1990年开业的北京国贸大饭店也将在三四年内拆除重建。

  国贸三期B阶段是国贸中心继2010年8月30日正式投入使用的三期A阶段之后的又一重要建设发展项目,规划内容包括现代化购物中心、高档写字楼、豪华酒店、文化、休闲娱乐设施等全方位服务设施。精致、华丽、人性化设计、户内外顺畅便捷的交通环流将使国贸商城成为引领时尚、独具风格、高品质的深受各界人士喜爱的购物中心;三期B阶段主塔楼融现代化、节约环保技术的甲级写字楼和新型时尚、数字技术的商务酒店为一体,整体设计时尚前卫、环保绿色,由世界著名设计公司Skidmore, Owings &Merrill LLP(SOM)负责总体方案设计。

  国贸三期B阶段工程完成后,国贸中心总占地面积将达到17万平方米,总建筑面积超过100万平方米,使国贸中心成为全球规模最大的世界贸易中心,发展建设后的国贸中心将以更加完善的配套设施向中外宾客商贸娱乐活动提供全方位服务。国贸中心将继续成为北京CBD中心商务区最有影响力的地标性建筑群。









Chinese source suggests the tower would be 220M in height, but i rekon the 280M figure from Achdaily might be more accurate.

Looks like a shrunk version of Taipei 101.

The architect saw taipei 101, made a mini version and slammed on it with a hammer. He painted it grey/ light blue and there was his new design.

I've don't enjoyed bamboo inspired designs, though this one is somewhat likable.

Not too exciting, but still nice tower.

When is this expected to be finished?

I like it! Hopefully there will be a bit of progress while I'm in Beijing, so I can provide some updates before I leave.

Indeed - it's looking much better than it did, that's for sure.
I took some photos last week and put them in this thread:
