Liebian Building is a skyscraper located right in the business center of Guiyang, the capital of Guizhou Province, in Southwest China. The largest urban waterfall on the planet flows from the building, boasting an impressive water jet that falls from a height of 108 meters.
The waterfall is designed to be a tourist attraction and was built by the Guizhou Ludiya Property Management Company, a private company that had its offices in the skyscraper. The Liebian Building also houses a hotel and shopping center.
This spectacular waterfall is powered by an electrical system which consists of four pumps at a power of 185 kilowatts which consumes over $115 an hour. The water is combination of rainwater and recycled tap water which was once stored in an underground storage and drainage system and then used again for the falls. The waterfall is only activated for a maximum of 20 minutes at a tie and only for important events.
