Completed in 2000 and located at the city's renowned Huaqiangbei Electronics Market, the SEG Plaza building stands 356 meters tall when the antenna height is included.
The skyscraper, the 18th tallest structure in Shenzhen, was built in 2000 and houses a major electronics market and other business offices.
The government also vowed to organize tenants to move back and resume normal operation after the wobble problem is fixed as soon as possible.
A Chinese skyscraper had to be evacuated Tuesday afternoon after it began inexplicably swaying on its foundation, prompting scores of bystanders to flee in terror, as seen in a series of viral videos circulating social media.
There has been a few collapsed chinese buildings in the past.
Experts have not yet been able to find a reason for the wobble.
