It's Zhujiang Investment Building, but I can't find the date to save my life.

It is one of the oldest building on that cluster, but I doubt it is very old.

I think this building came after the CITIC plaza. Although this building is designed to be old stylish, it still looks great because of the "grand hyatt?" in the opposite side. It matches with twins with in twins.

To me it looks far better than most other Asian buildings from the 90s that attempted to imitate older styles.

I thought it was a '20s or '30s building.

Actually, I think you might be right...

There's no way this is 90s

It's either so good it looks kind of like a 30s building from the 90s, or so bad it looks kind of like a 90s revival building from the 30s.

I like it a lot though.

Believe it or not the Zhujiang Investment Buildings were actually one of the first buildings to be built in the Zhujiang New Town Master plan. They were constructed from 2002 - ~2004. So they are definitely not that old.
