China Opens 'World's Largest Building'
Check out photos of the new center here.
The building is huge (18.94 million square feet, to be precise), but it's not alone in the world of gargantuan structures. Before Chengdu stole the spotlight, Terminal 3 at the Dubai International Airport held the world title for most floor space. The U.S. doesn't appear on this list's top 10, but Las Vegas makes a showing at #11, with the 6.9 million square foot Palazzo hotel and casino in Las Vegas. (It's tied with the Grand Indonesia in Jakarta.)
The U.S. does have some size world records of its own, including:
- The building with the largest usable space by volume
- The largest tree by volume
- The largest straw maze
- The largest drug store
- The tallest thermometer
