A tourist highlight in Shenzhen is the KK100 skyscraper. It is the world's 15th tallest building and Shenzhen's 2nd tallest as of 2015. The 100th floor observation deck gives one of the best views of Shenzhen.



The KK100 project was designed by the TFP Farrells architectural firm. It took them four years to finish the building. It officially opened in 2011. The KK Mall opened next to the tower in 2010. Until 2015, it was the tallest building in Shenzhen, when the Ping An IFC was built.
