Xiamen International Centre is a skyscraper under construction in Xiamen, China.[1] The tower was topped out in April 2016, and the building is expected to be completed in 2019.

The location of Xiamen International Center was formerly China Post & Telecommunication Tower, a planned 342-meter tall office building with telecommunication tower on top. The project began construction in 1996 but was halted at podium level due to a financial situation within China Post. The current building began construction in 2014, and is expected to be completed in September 2017.

From 2016 to present, Xiamen International Center has been the tallest building in the city of Xiamen, as well as tallest in the Haixi Metropolitan Area.
