SEE the World’s Largest Building with an artificial beach and much more (PHOTOS)

With a 5,000 square meter artificial beach, which includes a rafting course and a “seafront” promenade, complete with parasols and seafood outlets that can accommodate 6,000 people and  boasting its own artificial sun and a floor area three times that of the Pentagon, the New Century Global Centre in China is now  the “world’s largest building.” Recently opened, the complex stands at 100-meter (330-foot) high, which is said to be big enough to hold 20 Sydney Opera Houses, is 500 meters long by 400 meters wide, offering 1.7 million square meters of floor space.
Newsinfo reports:
But the first wave of visitors were divided over the attractions of the structure, which houses 400,000 square meters of shopping space, offices, conference rooms, a university complex, two commercial centers, two five star hotels, and an IMAX cinema. “It lacks creativity,” said one visitor on Sina Weibo, China’s version of Twitter.
Another visitor poked fun at its name. “Why is everything in Chengdu called ‘global’,” the poster said. However, some Internet users were impressed with the complex, which opened on June 28. “It will become the new landmark of Chengdu,” said one poster. The Global Centre has a marine theme, with fountains, a huge water park and an artificial beach, accented by the undulating roof, meant to resemble a wave.
