The main uses of the Wenzhou World Trade Center are commercial office space and a hotel. Other secondary uses include retail and restaurants as well as an exercise facility and observation floor.
The project began in 2003, reaching completion in 2010. Though plans had initially called for the tower to reach only 260 meters, the design was adjusted to meet the requirements of a taller building. The Wenzhou World Trade Center also features a spire at the top of the structure. The structure towers over the surrounding buildings to become a prominent, powerful symbol on the skyline of one of China’s important foreign treaty ports.
