IMO this building suits beijing CBD well. considering the distorted 'gate'- CCTV HQ, there should be something straight and stable nearby.

CBD and Financial Street Area combine with the Forbidden City and parks.

Really great skyline!

The crown looks very sophisticated. I wonder how many layers of cladding there will be.
