The history of skyscrapers in Beijing began in 1959 with the completion of the National Minority Hotel. Beijing's skyline gradually expanded upward at a modest rate for three decades. The completion of the China World Trade Center Tower 1 in 1989 marked the beginning of Beijing's first building boom that lasted ten years. During this time period, four skyscrapers taller than 150m (492ft) were completed, including the 208m (682ft)Jing Guang Centre, which stood as the tallest building in Beijing from 1990–2006. A second, much larger boom began in 2004 and continues into the present, where twelve skyscrapers taller than 150m (492ft) were finished. Many of the skyscrapers completed during both building booms are located in Chaoyang District, including the Beijing TV Centre, Park Tower and Fortune Plaza Office Building 1, all of which served as the tallest building in the city for a time.As of December 2008, there are 895 completed highrise buildings in Beijing.
