The construction of CITIC Tower began on July 29, 2013, and was completed on December 28, 2018, since then it has entered the process of final acceptance of construction.

The building, which is spread over 437,000 square meters, is located in the core area of the Central Business District in Beijing. With height of 528 meters, it has 108 floors above ground and seven underground, and the building will mainly be used for office and sightseeing.

CITIC Group said passing the final acceptance of construction is a milestone for CITIC Tower, marking a successful completion of the project and bridging "the last mile" from development and construction to operation and maintenance management.

Designed by international design firm Gensler, the 632-meter-tall, 132-story skyscraper Shanghai Tower is the tallest building in China, also the second-tallest building in the world.

CITIC Group, founded in 1979, has become a large multinational conglomerate with a wide range of businesses covering finance, energy and resources, manufacturing, engineering contracting, real estate and information industry.

In August 2014, CITIC Group injected its majority assets into CITIC Pacific, its Hong Kong-listed subsidiary, which was sequentially renamed CITIC Limited.
