The Goldin Finance 117 is a towering business skyscraper, located in the business district of the Chinese city Tianjin, that is referred to by many people as the "Walking Stick" building due to its shape. Currently still in the process of being constructed, the building is so named because of its 117 floors. The building is designed for mixed use, and its height of 597 meters makes it one of the tallest skyscrapers in the world.

The building's design is distinctive thanks to a diamond-shaped glazed upper area that contains a revolving restaurant, luxury hotel, viewing area and swimming pool. The lower area is reserved for office spaces, while residential and commercial areas are also earmarked for inclusion in the project.

Due to open in 2016, the Goldin Finance 117 is sure to be one of China's biggest architectural features.
