West Pearl Tower (Chinese: 四川广播电视塔) is a 339-metre-high (1,112 ft) tower built of reinforced concrete located in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, China. West Pearl Tower started construction in 1992 but construction was halted later in the year due to budgeting problems. Construction restarted in 1998 and was completed in 2004. It was mainly built to help TV networks across Chengdu but since then it has expanded to include a revolving restaurant with a 360 degree view of the city, and a recreational and commercial mall for Chengdu.[1]
