It's a humongous 235m tall tower though. More than 3x the floor space as a conventional tower of the same height.

again, the price tag of 1.8 billion is the total cost of the two buildings put together. The other weird looking building under contruction beside the CCTV building is also included.

also remeber that this is going to be a TV station as well, which means the price tag will also include all the broadcasting and transmission hardware, as well as one of China's most grandious and advanced proformance theathers.

and ofcourse, the design.

it'll go fast. They'll just use 3X8hour shifts with no weekends and holidays. What they don't lack in China is man power, and the willingness of man to sell them.
