At 71 stories and 308 meters high, the new “super green” Pearl River Tower in the city of Guangzhou is an international icon of eco-friendly construction.

Located in the new Central Business District (CBD) and part of Guangzhou’s ambitious CBD development plan, the building design called for energy self-sufficiency and integration into the new high-rise skyline of the City.

This mixed use office project includes a number of new, energy-efficient and high technology systems, affording the structure an A+ energy efficiency rating. Pearl Tower is recognized as the greenest tower in China, and possibly the world.

Project Highlights:

  • The Pearl River Tower incorporates four 7-meter 6kW/hour wind turbines; 1,600 square meters of solar panels; chilled radiant air conditioning technology; heat recycling; low energy lighting; intelligent building management systems; and the world’s fastest elevators at 15 meters per second.
  • Annual carbon dioxide emissions from the Pearl River Tower are expected to be 30.4% lower than levels found in traditional buildings.
