Washington: China has constructed the world`s largest stand-alone building, equivalent to three Pentagons.

CBS News reported that the New Century Global Center in the city of Chengdu of Sichuan province is 1.9 million square meters in area, and about 329 football fields could fit inside this shopping mall.

The building also includes a hotel, an Imax theatre and an aquarium, an elaborate water park, as well as a beach with nearly a thousand feet of coastline.

Beachgoers can view an ocean scape on a giant LED screen that is 150 meters wide, nearly twice as long as the Statue of Liberty is high.
