Since the reformation in 1980s, Central Business Districts have been popping up in different cities in China. Learning from lessons of modern cities in the 20th century western world, new CBDs in China represent downtowns that are no longer just work place for office workers, but also a weekend leisure venue for families, and a holiday destination for tourists. In many instances, Supertall building becomes the center to these new CBDs - a place where people live, work, and enjoy urban life. As one of the three landmarks planned for the new Guangzhou CBD Zhujiang Xin Cheng, the CTF Guangzhou is one of the most complex supertalls ever undertaken.
