Wuhan Greenland Centeris a 476 metres (1,562 ft) tall skyscraper in Wuhan, China. The tower was originally planned to be 636 metres (2,087 ft) but It was redesigned mid-construction due to airspaceregulations so its height does not exceed 500 metres (1,640 ft) above sea level. Another Chinese building, Ping An Finance Center, was also scaled down for similar reasons.
It has more than 1400 towers, of which 48 are super tall buildings with a height of 300 meters and above. In 2018, it had build 88 high-rise towers. However, there is a mesmerizing skyscraper ‘Wuhan Greenland Center,’ which is still under construction, or you can say that never completed. Here in this article, we will discuss the ins and outs of this to-be tallest skyscraper in the world, beating many existing ones.

Wuhan Greenland Center features a uniquely streamlined form that combines three key shaping concepts—a tapered body, softly rounded corners and a domed top—to reduce wind resistance and vortex action that builds up around supertall towers.
CHICAGO, June 21, 2011—Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture is pleased to announce that it has won an international competition to design Wuhan Greenland Center, which at 606 meters (1,988 feet) will likely be China’s third-tallest building, and the fourth tallest in the world, when completed in about five years. Construction is scheduled to begin this summer in Wuhan near the meeting of the Yangtze and Han rivers.
Wuhan Greenland Center provides spaces for three distinctive functions: office, apartment, and hotel. While some mixed-use towers separate users by levels, the triangular floor plan of this building allows for the tenants or visitors to have separate entrances at the ground level.
At 119 stories and 300,000 square meters of floor area, it will include luxury apartments, a five-star hotel, premium office space, and a club at the penthouse level featuring breathtaking views of Wuhan. The tower incorporates several revolutionary design techniques aimed at making the tower more efficient. The footprint is tripod-shaped with rounded corners built around a composite concrete and steel core, and tapers extensively as it travels upwards.
The Wuhan Greenland Center uses a triangular floor plan that gently narrows along its height to provide extra stability that protects against intense winds and seismic events. By omitting portions of floors and perimeter framing at different elevations, “slots” are created in the building envelope to provide a distinctive architectural personality while reducing wind loads on the structure.
El Wuhan Greenland Center está compuesto por esquinas suavemente redondeadas y una cúpula superior para reducir la resistencia del viento. El rascacielo cuenta con un rendimiento aerodinámico extremadamente eficaz, lo que hace que permitirá minimizar la cantidad de materiales de construcción.
