I don't think they have weird names in Chinese, but translation is often difficult and result in literal translations which are weird.

Damn! That street intersection is bigger than the tower itself! Feel safe in a beautiful air conditioned tower but step outside to admire the building and you will be flattened by a speeding car! Wider streets mean faster travel when not filled with traffic, and that street has to be over 200 feet wide!

I guess your post was meant as a joke, but to still clear the name up, no the chinese name is simply descriptive. I guess a better translation would be "optics valley", because it is really about the technology.the area is just named like that for the companies etc that are located there. the valley in the name is the same as for "silicon valley", and noone considers that name to be strange haha.

With the explanation now out of the way I hope we can go back to the tower itself. I must say that I do like the new design. It's good to see this project still getting updates, it is not like Wuhan has enough 400m+ tower projects
