New video footage reveals the latest remarkable skyscraper under construction in China, incorporating a giant waterfall into its facade. The Liebian International Building, a 121-meter-tall tower located in Guiyang, southwest China, features a dramatic 108-meter-high water feature.

This unique element is one of the largest artificial waterfalls globally and the tallest incorporated into a building. It operates via four pumps that draw water from underground tanks filled with rainwater and runoff.

The striking building, developed by the Ludi Industry Group, is still under construction. However, the water feature has been functional for the past two years.

Though comprehensive details of the tower are not yet available, the building is part of a complex that includes another equally tall tower extending from a podium structure. The towers will house offices and a luxury hotel, while the podium building will feature a shopping center.

According to Ludi Industry Group director Cheng Xiamao, the architect designed the tower to integrate water into the cityscape, enhancing the urban environment.
