Groundbreaking ceremony held for Guangxi Financial Investment Center in Nanning

Construction is underway on the tallest tower in Nanning, China. Designed by John Portman & Associates, the Guangxi Financial Investment Center (previously known as the Tianlong Fortune Center) will stand at 1,312ft when it completes, making it the tallest structure in the region.

The elegant form begins with a square base, broadening to an octagon at the middle before returning to a square plan at the top. At the top of the soaring tower will be an executive club and ‘destination’ restaurant, with renderings suggesting an open-air sky garden planted with mature trees.

Below this will sit a 5-star atrium hotel with fitness centre, pool, restaurant and business centre. The remainder of the tower will be dedicated to prime commercial space, focusing on the financial sector. A previous article about the Guangxi Financial Investment Center can be found here.
