BEIJING: Beijing YinTai Centre (250m/186m/186m)

Beijing YinTai Centre
Beijing - China

Project adress: East Third Ring Road / Jianguomen Waidajie
Construction start: 2004
Construction completed: 2007
Architects: John Portman & Associates/ Yomaz Design Studio

Designed to enhance the Beijing skyline, this comprehensive mixed-use complex is a study in simple, straightforward architecture. The three towers are comprised of two 45-story twin office towers and a 62-story hotel counting 250m with 237 guest rooms, 180 luxury apartments, and 48 service apartments. Each of the two office towers are divided vertically with sky lobbies which enable them to essentially function as four separate office buildings. At the base, a large podium connects the three towers, providing lobbies, meeting facilities, shops, and restaurants.

A large space under the podium provides motor access to the complex, granting each tower its own grand entry. The landscaped roof of the podium extends the gardens and water features at street level to form a multi-level urban park. This complex serves as a retreat from its congested surroundings, and enhances the lifestyle of people working and living in Beijing.

Very nice but I think the "Construction completed" date may be a little off if those images were taken recently.

Yes, but when i don't have any information of any other date i can't write any other date, so i hope somebody knows a bit more about it. I don't know for sure how old these images is either.

a huge construction site and a nice project

what always scares me are those old buildings surrounding such a new project

in the3rd and last pic there is an ugly massive tower block and there is work going on on it, watch the cranes
it looks like this ugly beast has just been topped out
what's going on on the plot next to yin tai actually?

Design architect

Hello,

My name is Andrew Simmons and I was the principal designer at John Portman and Associates responsible for the design of the Beijing, Yin Tai Center. I no longer work at Portman ( I started my own firm www.yomaz.com) and would like to update the construction images for the project. Please reply if you have images for my resume and portfolio [email protected] or visit my web page. Thank you for your help.
