ITG Financial Center, Xiamen
Height: 138.5 m
Contents/capacity: one 4-floor (partially 5) commercial podium, two 30-floor super high-rise Grade A office tower
As the gateway of the city’s new central axis, ITG Financial Center is situated at Huli Phase I Kick-off Zone of Xiamen Cross-Strait Financial Center. This mixed-used complex consisting of office and retails boasts the new generation of super Grade A landmark office building and the most representative commercial building in Xiamen, hence praised as “a city to the west of the ocean and the gateway to the city”. The shape of the “gateway” symbolizes the one that opens up the communication and exchange across the Taiwan Straits and the one that leads up to the international finance and trade. As response to the superior geographic location, i.e. the project site, the Xiang’an Tunnel exit and the distant sea view forms an axis, the “gateway to the west of ocean” is not only made the most prominent landmark of the financial center area when seen from far on the sea, but also the first visual focus point at the exit of the cross-strait tunnel. The office towers are connected into one whole entity, with a sky club at the top symbolizing the bridge of exchange and communication across the Straits. While the north and south towers are functionally separated from each other, they share the common facilities such as sky club, sky office lobby and conference center etc to maximize resource sharing and symbolize the resource-sharing, mutually beneficial and win-win trade relation across the Straits.
