Wuhan Greenland Center[3] is an unfinished skyscraper in Wuhan, China. Construction has stalled since August 2017 at the 96th floor. Due to airspace regulations, it will be redesigned so its height does not exceed 500 metres above sea level.[4] Another Chinese building, Ping An Finance Center, was also scaled down for similar reasons.

In June 2011, Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architects in conjunction with Thornton Tomasetti Engineers won the design competition[5] to build an energy-efficient[5] tower for Greenland Group, a real estate developer owned by the Shanghai city government.
