Guangzhou, China


At 1,283 ft (391 m) tall, CITIC Plaza is the world's tallest structure made of reinforced concrete. Completed in 1997, the 80-story CITIC Plaza is surrounded by two 38-story apartment buildings. The structure houses the China International Trade and Investment Corporation (CITIC), other financial institutions, and a shopping mall.

Fun Fact: CITIC Plaza was the tallest building in Asia until the Petronas Towers were built.
