This large-scale project is called Raffles City Chongqing. Four towers at an altitude of 250 meters hold the horizontal structure, which is officially called the “Crystal” (Eng. Crystal). Its length is 300 m and its weight reaches 12,000 tons – most of the “Crystal” had to be carefully lifted to a height with the help of cranes.
Crystal visitors can reach the top floor in just 50 seconds with a high-speed elevator. Here is an exhibition pavilion dedicated to the future life on colonized Mars, and a viewing platform with a transparent glass floor. It offers beautiful views of the city and two nearby rivers.
And in the coming months, Crystal will also open a private club with pools, restaurants and bars.
