^ Agreed.

May be awesome to look at these modelsm but if it would be build - it'd look horrible I guess (and way too huge)

Highly unlikely it will ever be constructed. I don't know the source, but it's conceptual. It would cost $gazillions to construct something like that, and for what!?

That is not practical at all. No more sunlight would reach the streets.

Sun vs Beijing Streets

There aren't that many days per year that the sun reaches the streets of Beijing anyway...

Dream on kids. It will never be built.

More pics on this one's construction would be great tom. It's going to be a very handsome tower IMO. When you get the chance please.
