Amazing, have to say as an architecture student (which of course means i have exemplary informed architectural taste ) I am drawn more to the the adjacent building (TVCC?) a bit less or a one trick pony and I think actually more refined.

This group of shots are absolutely stunning! It looks to me it will only take another 2 or 3 weeks to top out. How exciting!

the tower is top out already ... the last corner under construction is lower than the highest point of the tower ... so its topped out, coz the highest point is reached already =) ... so means topped out if the highest point reached or if the cranes are gone? ... a bit weird on this building hehe

Wasn't there a plan to make that underside into a giant television screen?

The TVCC building would contain a 241-room hotel, restaurants and spas, recording studios, and a 1,500-seat theatre. I may have forgotten the nickname of this building. what else will the building contain?

I just saw a show on the Link Channel in the US. They did a walkthru of the CCTV Tower and the office ceilings look like they were around 12feet high. It looks like two windows on top of one another for every floor.

It is a very good trick though.

Thanks for the updates General Huo! Sublime stuff.
