if it's 333m, then it'd be as tall as that abandoned pyramid in pyongyang.

On 12 Dec. 2007 I went to the city centre and took these pics.
1. (3x zoom)
The tall building on the far left, Jingguang Centre, is 208m.
Between Jingguang and CWTC3 is 234m CCTV.
And you know how tall CWTC3 is.

2. (no zoom)

Yep, beautiful. In one-two months' time the exterior will be complete. This must have been a speed record as to days-per-floor ratio, don't know if anyone has exact data about this.

What happened to the 150-metre office tower(s) that are supposed to flank the China World Trade Centre tower? Has that been cancelled or construction won't start until after the Olympic Games? By now, the tower doesn't look like it needs to be flanked by two 150-metre towers.

Or those two towers could be the existing 155-metre black-coloured towers?

Could somebody provide a source for the final height and floors? I've checked the thread and different figures have been posted...

Heights: 333m, 330m, 308m, 301m
Floors: 88, 80, 74

This is the fastest cladding I've seen so far, but of course they're rushing it for the Olympics. Great looking tower (especially the cladding) for Beijing, and great update!
