The Nanjing Greenland Financial Center (also Greenland Square Zifeng Tower) is a supertall skyscraper currently topped-out in Nanjingmarker, Chinamarker with completion expected in 2009. The 89-story building will feature office space and retail space in the lower section, and restaurants and a public observatory near the top, which will be topped off with a spire. The tower’s stepping is functional, helping separate these sections.

The mixed-use tower which overlooks Xuanwu Lake became the second tallest building in China and the 5th tallest building in the world when topped out in 2008. An observation deck on the 72nd floor, above ground, will provide an unobstructed, panoramic view of Nanjing and the nearby Yangtze Rivermarker, two lakes and the Ningzheng Ridge mountains.

Marshall Strabala and Adrian Smith, who also worked together to design Burj Dubaimarker, designed the competition winning building for the Nanjing Greenland Financial Center. The design was taken over by Gordon Gill under the guidance of Adrian Smith throughout the post-competition design of the building complex. The complex was designed while all three of these architects worked at Skidmore, Owings and Merrill.
