China Zun (Chinese: 中国尊; pinyin: Zhōngguó Zūn) is a supertall skyscraper under construction in the Central Business District of Beijing, capital of China. The 108-storey, 528-metre building will be the tallest in the city, and its height will surpass that of China World Trade Center Tower III by 190 metres.[2]

China Zun name comes from the zun, an ancient Chinese wine vessel which inspired the building design, according to the developers, the CITIC Group. The groundbreaking ceremony of the building took place in Beijing on September 19, 2011 and the constructors expect to finish the project within five years. After completion, China Zun will be Northern China's second tallest building after Goldin Finance 117 in Tianjin.

It was designed by architecture firm Farrells.[3]
