Inside Chaoyang district, this area called "Beijing Central Business District" is given a special focus by Beijing authorities in order to turn it into one of the most attractive business districts in the world, with in background the everlasting competition between Beijing and Shanghai.
The developement plan for this area is very ambitious. In the year 2000, the Beijing authorities have officially decided that dozens of high-rise towers (up to 300 in the original project) would be built in the incoming years. The first tower of this project is the now famous "CCTV Tower", designed by the dutch architecture firm "Office for Metropolitan Architecture". The tower has been achieved in 2008.
Other high-rise buildings now embellish the district, such as the "China World Trade Center" Tower III, designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, 330 meters high.
