The NEW CENTURY GLOBAL CENTER is currently the world's largest building by total floorspace. On more than 1.7 million square metres it houses a gigantic shopping mall, an ice skating rink, one of Asia's largest 3D movie theatres, an indoor beach area over which the world's biggest LCD screen will soon project an artificial sun. Next to the beach are two five star hotels, conference rooms and office space as well as a replica mediterranean village. Time will have to prove the building's economic success, but its number one ranking will be secure for a few years at least.
It is designed to be the centre of Chengdu's new city development.
