CITIC Headquarters

Located at the core of Beijing’s new 30-hectare central business district, CITIC Tower is the tallest building and a new icon of the capital.

The design of the 528-meter tall office tower draws inspiration from the form of a traditional Chinese ritualistic artifact, the “zun.” The design abstracts and refines this form, balancing composition and articulation with structural requirements and leasing depth needs. Transforming articulation design is applied throughout the tower from exterior envelop to the lobby and observation deck interiors. In plan, the building 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 spaces and a multipurpose business center.
