Ling Long Tower 玲珑塔

The tower houses broadcasting facilities. It is a permanent fixture serving sportscasters from around the world. Although built for the Olympics, it will continue to serve the sports complexes surrounding the Green for future games and events.

The name means "delicate" tower. It's 128 meters tall and has seven floors. The top floor gives the wide angle overview pictures of the different venues located in the Green that broadcasters like to use to set the scene. Offices and equipment for different broadcasters occupy the rest of the space.
