Bank of China Tower, also known as BOC Tower, antes up the Hong Kong’s skyline. This skyscraper has a prism-like frontage consisting of four triangular towers, all built of varying heights, made up of aluminum and glass. Designed by the American architect I.M. Pei, the building stands 72 stories tall, reaching the height of 1,084 feet (330.4 meters) and is the fourth tallest building in Hong Kong.
Located at 1 Garden Road, Bank of China Tower houses the Hong Kong headquarters of the Beijing based central Bank of China, hence the name. Once the visitors get inside the building, they can take a quick elevator ride up to the 43rd floor where they would get to see the panoramic views of the mid-city. Pei was asked to create a building that shows both the aspirations of Chinese people and symbolize the goodwill towards the British colony. Hence, he created the Bank of China tower which, for a few years, was the tallest building in the world.
