A delivery certification ceremony for Beijing's tallest building China Zun was held in the city on Dec 28, 2018, making the 528-meter high skyscraper a new landmark for the country's capital.

The building's gently rising and curving form resembles an ancient Chinese ceremonial vessel, called "zun", which was the inspiration for the tower's name.

Built by China State Construction Engineering Corp (CSCEC), China Construction Third Engineering Bureau Co Ltd and China Construction Industrial & Energy Engineering Group Co Ltd, the China Zun project is located in central business district and has eight floors underground and 108 floors above ground.

It is designed with various supporting facilities and services such as Grade A offices and space for conferences, commercial activities and businesses. China Zun has the capacity to accommodate 12,000 people at the same time.

The project is the world's first skyscraper higher than 500 meters able to withstand a magnitude-eight earthquake. The only super high building delivered last year around the world, China Zun set many records during its construction.
