China has many wonders, including the Great Wall and Tiananmen Square. Now, the country has something new to add to this list – the world’s largest building.
The New Century Global Centre opened its doors on July 1. China now has what is billed as the world’s largest building — a vast, wavy rectangular box of glass and steel that will house shops, hotels, offices and a faux ocean beach with a huge LED screen for video sunsets. The mammoth New Century Global Center in the southwestern Chinese city of Chengdu measures 100 metres high, 500 metres long and 400 metres wide, and now tops the list of the world’s largest buildings by floor space – a list commonly dominated by airports. It is a massive structure covering 1.76 million square metres, or enough room to store 20 Sydney Opera Houses, The Independent reported. Number two on the list is Dubai’s International Airport Terminal 3, at 1.71 million square metres, and Hong Kong International Airport Terminal 1 ranks 18th, with 570,000 square metres
