  • Modern treatment of tones and textures utilizing traditional stone, combined with the dichotomy of complex aluminum shapes, present an instantly recognized image.
  • The 50-storey high structure is fully unitized for the entire wall system, some of the larger units are over 7 metres in height.
  • The entire project demanded the highest standards of finish and materials. The test specimen was subjected to very high windloads; the project was tested to pressures equivalent to a wind speed in excess of 300 mph.
  • Currently the 2nd tallest building in Kaohsiung, and 3rd tallest in Taiwan.
  • The building's design uses the traditional Chinese pagoda style, where it looks like a block sitting atop another block. The building has an octagon-shape to deflect force from the wind.
  • Chang-Gu World Trade Center was the tallest building in Kaohsiung from 1992 until the Tuntex Sky Tower was completed in 1997.
  • Chang-Gu World Trade Center is the first building in Taiwan over 50 floors. It was the tallest building in Taiwan for 6 months, from 1992 until early 1993 when Shin Kong Life Tower was completed in Taipei.
