The KK100 (Chinese: 京基100), formerly known as Kingkey 100 and Kingkey Finance Tower, is a supertall skyscraper in Shenzhen, Guangdong.

Location[edit]

It is located on Shennan East Road and within Caiwuwei, an area often described as the 'financial district' of Shenzhen. It belongs to Shenzhen's Luohu District and is situated east of Lizhi Park, approximately one kilometer north of the border between mainland China and Hong Kong.

The mixed-use building rises 441.8 metres (1,449 ft) and contains 100 floors for office space and a hotel.[2] Out of those 100 floors, 74 are used for 173,000 square metres (1,862,157 sq ft) of Class A office space, 26 stories for a 35,000 square metres (376,737 sq ft) six-star business hotel and the top four floors of the skyscraper hold a garden and several restaurants.[2][3] Adjacent to KK100 is the KK Mall, which opened its doors November 26, 2010, and contains luxury brand stores, restaurants and a supermarket.[4] The KK Mall also hosts Shenzhen's first IMAX cinema.

The St. Regis Hotel occupies floors 75 to 100 of the main tower, which opened in September 2011.[5]

The lobby of the St. Regis Hotel is in 96th floor of this building. There are 4 elevators ride between 1st and 96th floor (2 elevators stop 1,5,96 and another 2 elevators stop 1,96). These 4 elevators are made by Mitsubishi which can ride to 9m/s (1800 FPM)

It is currently the second tallest building in Shenzhen as well as being the 14th tallest building in the world.[6] It is the tallest building ever designed by a British architect.

There is a water fountain in front of the building, and an observation deck near the top.[citation needed] In December 2011, the Emporis Skyscraper Award awarded the building a fourth place.

The building has a height-width ratio of 9.5:1, thus becoming one of China's slimmest buildings.
