Central Business District (CBD) (Shâng yè zhông xîn qû)

Central Business District (CBD) (Shâng yè zhông xîn qû) Review

The fast-rising CBD encompasses the China World Trade Center (the recently completed third tower is the tallest building in Beijing) and a slew of new and impressive skyscrapers, some designed by internationally known architects. One example is the new CCTV Tower. The multimillion-dollar complex employs a continuous loop of horizontal and vertical sections, and its distinctive shape has earned it the moniker "big pants." Nearby is The Place, a shopping mall best known for its massive canopy-style LED screen that puts on impressive displays.
