About Shenzhen Zhongzhou Holdings Financial Center

Shenzhen Zhongzhou Holdings Financial Center is the first supertall building to be constructed in Shenzhen’s Nanshan District, what was at the time considered a suburban area in the southwestern part of the city. The Shenzhen Zhongzhou Holdings Financial Center is part of a two building complex which towered over the local neighborhood during the construction phase of the project which saw the two buildings rise simultaneously.

While the shorter building was constructed of only reinforced concrete, the taller Shenzhen Zhongzhou Holdings Financial Center has a composite structure in which both the perimeter columns and the core were initially framed in steel and then encased in concrete. The core and outrigger structural system is then reinforced with three sets of steel belt trusses spanning two floors each at the 28th- 29th and 43rd-44th floors as well as the at the very top of the structure above the 61st floor. Both buildings rise from a single block and a shared 3 story deep basement spanning the entire site.

Shenzhen Zhongzhou Holdings Financial Center is functionally split between offices uses at the bottom and a hotel occupying the uppermost 20 floors. The hotel features a tall interior atrium spanning through 18 floors on the east side of the tower, offering dramatic views towards Deep Bay. The tower stands out among its shorter immediate neighbors and became new focal point for the skyline within this distant southwestern portion of the city.
