     More and more construction projects have broken ground in China over the past few years, with billions of dollars being poured into their budgets. Are they worth such huge investments? People have different opinions on the matter。
  The following are the top 10 over-priced buildings in China.




  Located at an end of Nanjing Road Pedestrian Street in downtown Shanghai, Shimao International Plaza is a 60-floor skyscraper and the tallest building in Puxi District. The building was completed in 2005 and designed by Germany's Ingenhoven, Overdiek und Partner and East China Architecture and Design Institute。

  The plaza has two spires on its top, making its total construction height 333.3 meters. The upper floors (11th-60th) house the five-star, ultra-luxurious Le Royal Méridien Shanghai hotel with 770 rooms. The building also includes a large shopping mall, restaurants and exclusive clubs。






  The National Stadium is a stunning Beijing landmark. It has been nicknamed the "bird's nest" due to the web of twisting steel sections that form its roof. The building was designed by the Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron for use throughout the 2008 Summer Olympics and Paralympics. It covers an area of 20.4 hectares, with its tallest point at 69.21 meters。

  The stadium has two independent structures, a red concrete seating bowl and the outer steel frame 50 feet away. The steel frame is shaped like a saddle and is an elliptical structure weighing 42,000 tons. The three-level seating can hold up to 91,000 spectators, and the building is considered to be the world's largest enclosed space。






  Yuanwang Mansion, also known as the "City in the Sky," is a super skyscraper located in Changsha, the capital city of Hunan Province. It will stand at 838 meters in height and have 220 floors, 10 meters higher and 50 floors more than the world's current tallest building, Burj Khalifa in Dubai. It is designed to contain residential units, hotels, schools, a hospital and offices buildings. It can be a home for 30,400 people and will have 16 panoramic and 31 super high speed elevators. The construction period will only last for seven months and it is expected to be completed in 2013.






  Located on Beijing's East Third Ring Road, China's New Central Television headquarters is located at the heart of the city's Central Business District. The building was designed by the Dutch company OMA, a leading international partnership practicing architecture, urbanism, and cultural analysis。

  The building twists the idea of a skyscraper quite literally into a 49-story-tall gravity-defying loop, which poses a truly three-dimensional experience. The site primarily consists of the main building, the TV Cultural Center and auxiliary facilities. It covers a total floor area of 550,000 square meters, with its tallest point at 230 meters。



















  Beijing Capital International Airport Terminal 3 was designed by the famous British architect Norman Foster. Its construction started on March 28, 2004 and took four years to complete. It is a major landmark in Beijing representing the growing and developing Chinese city。

  Covering a total area of 986,000 square meters, the terminal is the world's largest building and most advanced airport. Its roof adopted a large-span hyperboloid steel grid structure, in the shape of a plane. It measures 958 meters from north to south, and 775 meters from west to east。

  The terminal offers an unparalleled travelling experience, not only technologically, but also in terms of operational efficiency, passenger comfort, sustainability and access to natural light. It features a main passenger terminal (Terminal 3C), two satellite concourses (Terminal 3D and Terminal 3E) and five floors above ground and two underground。

  Built in 1958, Beijing Capital International Airport, known as the "China Gateway," is the largest and busiest international aviation hub with the most advanced facilities in China. It is the first airport in the Asia-Pacific region that has three terminals, three runways, and two towers operating simultaneously。





  China Zun is a skyscraper under construction in the Central Business District of Beijing. It is named after the Zun, an ancient Chinese wine vessel, which inspired the design. The building will reach a height of 528 meters with 108 floors after completion in 2016. It is expected to surpass China World Trade Center Tower III by 190 meters to be the tallest building in the city。





  The Wuhan Greenland Center being built by the Greenland Group will not be the highest building in the world, but the investment on its construction is much more than the Burj Khalifa Tower's US$1.5 billion and Taipei 101's 12.8 billion yuan (US$2.02 billion)。

  Designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, the Wuhan Greenland Center is going to be the world's 4th tallest building. It will reach a height of 606 meters with 119 floors. This tower is an elegantly tapered structure featuring softly rounded corners and a domed top designed to reduce wind resistance and vortex action that builds up around super tall towers. It also aims to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions。
