whilst it shows the emergence of middle class, but this growth will very likely bring a big dent to the environment. how easy is it to get around in beijing without a car?

Very, if you know Chinese. The bus goes everywhere, and even if you don't know Chinese, taxi goes everywhere and the rapidly expanding subway covers most places and will cover almost all places soon.

Nice photos!

@YohIMhER, from the countries I've visited, China might have the best taxi coverage, whenever you lift your hand up, there is a taxi (or two ) stopping in front of you.

Well I think just about anything is going to look short if you look at it from far away enough.
On the other hand, this has good height, and does not cheat with any pumped up spire or antenna.
Granted, I'd like Beijing to have four or five 400+.

everything is going up so fast and most of the towers being built are just stunning design and to think looking at the pic of the CBD that there is so much more room for improvement is beyond words
