It has 101 floors total and a total building area of 381,600 square meters. The inspiration for the building's basic shape comes from ancient Chinese appliances, yubi and yucong. The building adopts a sleek and realistic glass and metallic shell so visitors can enjoy the building's changing appearance depending on the weather and light. The 50-meter-diameter circular hole at the top of the building, in coordination with the design of the Oriental Pearl Television Tower from afar, creates a "moon gate" design, inspired from traditional Chinese architecture to reflect oriental culture's conception of heaven and earth.
