It's a indisputable fact that China is the leader role in terms of the construction for skyscraper buildings. For some natural causes like the dusty weather, and being located on earthquake fault, the capital city Beijing was not a city of skyscraper in a long time and has never been cutting edge among all the Chinese cities since the country entered into an era of skyscrapers.
However something there cannot be underestimated, the city is constructing a massive group of skyscrapers in a district known as Central Business District, the majority of the skyscrapers in Beijing are situated there. It makes the skyline more imposing since the buildings are not scattered everywhere like in some other cities like Tianjin or Wuhan.
CITIC Plaza is the tallest building of the district and is widely known as China Zun Tower, a nickname originated from its shape, which resembles the Zun, a sort of vessel used in ancient China, this special shape makes it one of the most unusual skyscrapers in the world.
The tower is designed to be 528 m tall, it's not very tall compared to other tallest skyscrapers in other cities of China, as there are more than 10 skyscrapers taller than it across China.
The tower structurally topped out on July 9, when the construction for its concrete core tube was completed, reaching 525 meters, with no more than 3 meters left to reach the peak, which will be composed of parapet structure, this special structure is simply like the fence that surrounds the edge of the roof, it's the extension of cladding. So the tower will be truly topped out when the cladding reach the uppermost point of the curtain wall and move on to form the parapet, or they may also possibly construct the crown first then install the rest of the cladding.
If they construct the crown part first, then the tower will truly top out in August, if not then the tower will top out a few months later, by then all the cladding will be completed, too.
