Beijing is really becoming the Asian Sao Paulo, but even better, since it has taller buildings (Sao Paulo's tallest is ~180m) and more daring architecture! The Olympics have truly totally transformed Beijing, the sea of highrises you see weren't even a developed area 20 years ago. Plus the quality of the filler buildings is rising rapidly, it used to be just high rise commieblocks, but now there is great design in almost all projects!

they probably just tried to finish this buidling's outside as fast as possible, so it looks better for the olympics, unlike a half finished cladding. Same goes for cctv headquarters.

Looks cool though, and I love the CCTV building.

It reminds me the former wtc of NY a lot. I wonder if this was intentional ( probably it was )

yes it does look so like the former WTC and especially with the crutch looking steel beams on the base. Is this tower structurally same as old WTC in a way that all the steel supports from inside are all pushed out at the perimeter?

When I was there a couple of weeks ago, both sides of the street were in use. I guess the rear lights don't show up as well on the photos.

rush hour effect. I believe in the morning when traffic is heavy on another direction, the other side of the road will be fully occupied.
