i dont think it looks like sao paulo, because Beijing's CBD is well define, in saopaulo, i cant find the CBD from looking the Skyline, the style is definitely different, and why cant beijing just be beijing, Beijing is so unique, you can never find a city with a enormous Palace as the city center, and CBD surrounding it

I know, just in that pic, the CBD looks like a sea of highrises, and the rest of Beijing is still a mid-rise sea. But you're right, the CBD in Beijing is more defined, and it has so much history, you can't find that anywhere else!

I hope we will see pics from the observation deck when the tower is opened. I think the view on the forbidden city will be much much better than the view from the CCTV Tower.

Are there any other 150m+ skyscrapers in Bejing under construction, besides this and the CCTV Headquarter?

The bottom of this building looks much like that of NY WTC .

There's no rendering available yet. Hope they won't build another one like WTC III, it's horrible to see NYC Twin Tower erected in Beijing.

I love this tower so much that if I had 3 wishes:

1. This tower in New York instead of the Freedom

2. That it was 100-150 meters taller

3. That there where 2 copies of the towers.
