Beijing Dawangjing will build a 260 meter tall landmark building


This reporter learned that the site of Dawangjing village, which formerly consisted of old and shabby low slung buildings and compounds,  will change into a financial, business, and research and development hub, called “Gateway to the Capital First Business District.” In the future, the Dawangjing business district will be linked to the Zhongguan Village National Independent Creative Development District, and the businesses that headquarter here will receive overlapping privileges and benefits from the nation, Beijing City, and Chaoyang district.

During the period of the 12th 5 year plan (2011-2015), a 97.47 hectare site will be used to build high end office buildings, public housing, and residences, set off by a 260 meter tall landmark building. The Dawangjing International Science and Technology Business Development Zone will be adjacent to the Zhongguan Village Electronic Science and Technology Park. The Airport Expressway is just to the East, and the Zone is 15 minutes from the airport. Therefore it is called the “Gateway to the Capital.”

At present one third of the Wangjing  population consists of long term foreign residents. 65% are persons of a high level of knowledge and recipients of high salaries. This new development zone will become the next Beijing CBD (Central Business District).
