China World Trade Center Tower III is a supertall skyscraper with 81 floors, 4 underground floors, and 30 elevators in Beijing, China. It is the third phase of development of the China World Trade Center complex in Beijing's central business district of Chaoyang at the junction of the East Third Ring Road and Jian Guo Men Wai Avenue. The building topped out at 330 m (1,083 ft) on 29 October 2007[4] and completed in early 2009. It is currently (August 2011) the tallest skyscraper in Beijing.

It is used for office and hotel space, with retail at its base. The building houses a 278-room 5-star hotel, a 1,600-seat grand ballroom and a carpark located at basement level. The office space is located on floors 1 to 55. Floors 64 to 77 are occupied by the hotel with a lobby on the 64th floor. Floors 79 to 81 are used for a restaurant and an observation deck. The four elevators that lead directly from the lobby to the 64th floor are Schindler 7000 and reach a maximum speed of 10 meters per second.[5]

The exterior of the tower is similar to the World Trade Center complex in New York, which was built in the early 1970s and destroyed in the 9/11 attacks.
