The main tower has 66 storeys with tower top height of 450m.  It mainly includes a super 5-star hotel and class A office building; The auxiliary tower has 24 storeys above ground and mainly serves as class A office building.

The building stands straight and high with the spiral up side atrium as a metaphor of a dragon.  The building skin design is novel and unique with zigzag type unit curtain wall, half unit is mismatching up and down so as to form an effect of a dragon scale. The building possesses a delicate dynamic feeling when observed from different points of view.  The short side of the zigzag type curtain wall adopts perforated metal plates, which can have interior light seen from outside, giving rich expression and strong architectural expressive force to the mansion.
