China International Trust and Investment (CITIC) Plaza (simplified Chinese: 中信广场; traditional Chinese: 中信廣場; pinyin: Zhōngxìn Guǎngchǎng; Jyutping: Zung1seon3 Gwong2coeng4) is an 80-storey, 391 m (1,283 ft) office skyscraper in the Tianhe District of Guangzhou, Guangdong, People's Republic of China. Its structural height includes two antenna-like spires on the top. Completed in 1997, it was the tallest concrete building in the world until the completion of the Trump Tower Chicago.[5] Currently, it ranks as the eighth-tallest building in China, 11th-tallest in Asia, and 16th-tallest worldwide.

Located in the growing and expanding Tianhe District, it is part of a complex of the same name which also consists of two 38-storey residential buildings. Its proximity includes a new train station which serves the extremely busy Guangzhou-Shenzhen and Guangzhou-Hong Kong railways. A new metro station, and the Tianhe Sports Center, where the 6th National Games and parts of the 2010 Asian Games were held. It is on the same Axis as two new building developments in Guangzhou, the first being the East and West Towers in Zhujiang New City and the Pearl Observation tower. It is surrounded by other tall buildings and is a symbol of Guangzhou's growing wealth and importance.

Tenants

All Nippon Airways operated its Guangzhou Office in 2605 CITIC Plaza until May 2, 2011. On May 3, 2011 and since then, it has been in Tower A of Victory Plaza.[6]

Transportation

The building is accessible from Linhe West Station of Guangzhou Metro.
