I know it's been said before, but I can't get over how it looks like a slightly altered version of the NYC WTC. I love it!

Wow I wonder if the proposal was before or after 9/11 because I think the base pays homage to the WTC towers in NYC. I also love the crown, it is breathtaking!!!

It's almost uncanny! From the vertical steel bars down the building, to the almost-trident base, to the awning, to the 2 darker "skylobby" sections of the building, even the name! The only thing it's missing is the height...

China's doing great with this one! Can't wait to see it on 8-8-8!

The faįade reminds me WTC, but the shape is much more interesting. Any special feature at night? (the litting, i mean)
