The Sino-Steel Tower (Chinese: 中钢大厦) is a 333 m (1,093 ft) tall skyscraper under construction in Tianjin, China.[2] Construction started in 2008 and it is expected to be complete in 2014.[1]

The building will contain offices and a hotel on 80 floors.[1] The design by MAD Studio, Beijing, is for the building to be clad in white and pierced by recessed hexagonal windows.[2] Some of the window surrounds will be crimson in colour, causing the building's appearance to alter with the changing light.[2]
