tower stories

 
Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture's Wuhan Greenland Center might not reach as high into the sky like the Kingdom Tower or the Burj Khalifa, but when it's completed, it will be the world's fourth tallest building, third-tallest in China and ultra sustainable. At 1,988 feet hight with 119 floors, the Wuhan Greenland Center's "tapered body, softly rounded corners and domed top" don't just make the entire structure look slim and sleek, special vents at the edges of its tripod-like "legs" help "reduce wind resistance and vortex action" that usually causes a building to sway.
