Facts

  • The building has commercial office space, a museum, restaurants, swimming pool and a gymnasium.
  • The tower is divided into two blocks of asymmetrical height, linked by a narrow atrium which is spanned by narrow bridges.
  • Century Tower is built to conform to seismic activity resistance requirements.
  • The client for the Century Tower wanted a design similar to that of the HSBC Main Building in Hong Kong, which was an international sensation at the time. Hence, the Century Tower can be seen as a scaled-down version of it.
