hmm i agree a little. But it depends on where the angle looking at it is. I u look at Big-Dog (post 838) first photo, i dont really like it. In some other pictures i do like it.

Remember though, it's not fonished yet

barely any progress at top i see. I guess theyre completing the interior at the bottom, so that offices can move in already. and then completing the top.

In 2005 Beijing had the equivalent of 3 Manhattans under construction. They are just about completed now, there's so many buildings I haven't seen before.

Taken Saturday (Dec 20) on my Beijing trip. Beijing's skyline is much better with this tower.

It's a very interesting tower. Makes me think that the Twin Towers had a kid with IFC 2 in Hong Kong. I like it, certainly adds a distinct shape to the ever changing skyline.
