Great Skyline. But needs more between the WTC. It would look better.

uhh is that a helipad on top of the CCTV tower?

WTC III and CCTV give Beijing an unique skyline.

In contrast to the games of Atlanta and Sydney, I haven't seen the CBD at all during the whole Olympic Games coverage on German TV / Eurosport... neither as scenery for the Marathon run nor as part of a report about the city life. Very strange - these buildings are worth to be introduced to the world public!

I was expecting more supertalls in Beijing. Maybe in the future we shall see more. A city of its kind definitely needs more grandiose tallies. I like the WTC however.

These buildings are located on the third ring. Beijing's center is too cultural to build anything tall. Thats why the city lacks tall buildings so much

u should watch the discovery channel show about the national theatre in beijing, then u'll see what a big deal they make about height in the center of the city.

Am I the only one who sees the mix of the Twin Towers and the tower in Hong Kong?

I don't like it.

It's also a WTC, so its not that bad to have it look like to the nonexisting NY twin towers.

I dont know how it looks like a hk building tho
