The Jing Guang Centre (Chinese: 京广中心; pinyin: Jīng-Guǎng Zhōngxīn, an abbreviation for "Beijing-Guangzhou Centre") is a 208 m (682 ft) skyscraper in Beijing CBD which was top of the List of tallest buildings in Beijing from 1989-2006.[1]

The Jing Guang Centre was also the tallest building in mainland China from completion in 1989 until 1996, when King Tower in Shanghai and Shenzhen's Shun Hing Square were completed. The main tower is composed of 3 parts: hotel, offices and condominium, with a side building of additional office space on the northern side.
