the base is like exact replica of old WTC and the mechanical floors resemble the ones of old WTC as well.

To be honest, It doesn't remind me WTC. It has a more complex desing, it is not a true box shaped building. Also, base and crown desings are more complicated.

That's a solid supertall. I love the corners near the top, very interesting element of the tower. I bet the corner offices look great.

Great looking tower, especially the top. I do hope Beijing adds a few more skyscrapers around it though. It has some neighbors, but could use a much more denser neighberhood.

Are their other skyscraper proposals out there right now?

Really? I doubt that the inside with hotel and lobby could be ready for the Olympics... but if you mean the exterior, I agree: surely the investors wouldn't like to miss the "lucky date", and Bejing wants to show a great skyline, when the focus is on this city.
Indeed, on the great recent nite pics, the cladding looks finished to me. So let party begin!

Are there likely to be more supertalls announced for Bejing in the coming months ?
