The world's second-tallest building with a roof-top helipad was also completed in 2010: Beijing's China World Trade Center Tower III, whose roof-top helipad is 330 m (1,083 feet) high. Both buildings are taller than the U.S. Bank Tower, the previous record-holder from 1989 to 2010, whose roof-top helipad is simply 310.3 m (1,018 feet) high. Construction of the building, designed by WilkinsonEyre, broke ground in December 2005, and has been completed in 2010. The building is used as a conference centre, hotel and office building.
