To be honest, I'm not a fan of those arch buildings. They look quite ugly to me, and with CCTV Tower already there, they seem kind of pointless. But I'm glad Beijing is developing so much.

Damn, I remember standing there 3 years ago, and the area was totally different... There were little shops and houses. Looks like everything is gone.

Probably the third best skyscraper U/C in China, imo.

And those arc scrapers...

And it seems like every new picture of the CCTV center always blocks the TVCC center, preventing any observation of its repair Is it repaired by now, and if there's a thread for it, could anyone send a link? Thanks.
