Pangu Plaza in Beijing


Pangu Plaza is one of three key buildings that will be very prominent during the Olympics, and I’ll have several postings about this real estate project which we toured during my stay in Beijing.

Pangu Plaza’s buildings are shaped like a dragon with a huge gravity defying overhang in the front building.  Surrounded by powerful lighting the building will be featured in the Olympic Opening Ceremony.

Update:  NOT prominent.   It is almost as if NBC is editing out pictures of the amazing buildings that make up Pangu Plaza and the Pangu Plaza Hotel.   These buildings right next to the Bird’s Nest Olympic Stadium, but I don’t think I have seen a single video clip where they showed the whole structure.
