I don't have a copy of the Guinness Book of Records with me, but here is a web search result :

http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpag...pagewanted=all

The world's largest multilevel industrial building is an immense complex in Hong Kong owned by an American company, the CSX Corporation. The 14-story building at the Kwai Chung docks has 16 miles of roads inside, mostly of three lanes, and handles 10,000 trucks bearing containers each day. Companies like Adidas, Wal-Mart, Target, Next and Liz Claiborne all lease space in the building for various tasks, like inspecting garments.

A little more web research resulted in:

These buildings(s) (owned by CSX as mentioned above) are known as Asia Terminals Ltd. (ATL), which has earned the distinction of being the largest and first multi-storey drive-in cargo logistics facility. Located at terminal 3 in Kwai Chung. The ATL complex consists actually of 2 blocks (named just A and B). CSX does not actually "own" these, but is the major shareholder (69%) of ATL and "CSX World Terminals" operates the ATL complex under a long-term management contract.

Not easy to find a spot that shows it in it's full "beauty"...

ATL Logistics Centre, Blocks B + A (right, smaller)


ATL Logistics Centre, Block B

ATL Logistics Centre, Block B

Besides the ATL complex is the large Hutchison Logistics center (Hong Kong International terminal, HIT), a single building on terminal 4, this appears to compete in (total) size with the ATL complex.

CSX does also "own" SeaLand Orient Terminals Ltd. (SLOT), which operates Terminal 3 at Kwai Chung and handles more than 1 Million TEU per year over a single berth. ATL also runs terminal 8 west (CT8W) on Stonecutters Island (Ngong Shuen Chau, not an island anymore).
