"Sight-seeing tower" would be the better translation...i'd assume

China is truly silencing critics around the world with fresh incredibly innovative architecture like this.
Really awesome.

Beijing only has the 330m WTC3 as the tallest building, which is much shorter than the other ones completed in China, so maybe there was a height limit.
Hopefully once the Zun tower is completed there will be more taller ones for Beijing.

By the way, is this the world's tallest observation-only/non-broadcasting tower?

That tower is UGLY! But they said the same thing about the Eiffel tower. I can't help but comment though that our world is starting to look like those futuristic cities we see in sci-fi movies.

Beautiful tower. But with Beijing's air quality there must be a lot of days when you can't see much of anything from them.

That last picture... 'City 17'
Those in the 1950s imagined buildings like this in today's age. They were right!
