The Chongqing World Trade Center (WTCC) is a 283.1 metre (929 foot) tall skyscraper located in the Jeifangbei CBD area of Chongqing, China.[1]

The building was completed in 2005 after three years of construction beginning in 2002 and topping out in 2004.[citation needed] The building has 60 floors which can all be accessed by 12 elevators. There are also two underground floors used as car park. CRT Metro Line 2 has an exit at Linjiangmen Station in the World Trade Center's retail podium.

The Chongqing World Trade Center is currently[when?] the 54th tallest existing skyscraper in the world when measured up to the spire and is the fourth tallest building in Western China (since being recently eclipsed by several other towers also in Chongqing).[citation needed] The building is 262 metres tall when not including the spire.
