yeah, i agree. there's a trend in a lot of cities to go for 'iconic' designs but without elegant buildings like this one it looks too much. i think this is a very competant, subtle design which will suit beijing nicely. i have a feeling a lot of these 'iconic' buildings will date pretty quickly.

This is a great design and it is indeed an elegant and subtle building. That said, it doesn't mean it can't become iconic for Beijing in the future.

Yintai can be seen on the background. It looks finished.

If they continue to build that fast this building will be completed before the olympic games.

The facade of the tallest tower is finished, but the other two's didnt yet.

The facade is expected to be finished on Apr 1, 2008. Hope it wouldn't be a fool's day joke.

I had no idea this tower was already that tall. When I was in Beijing last August it was nothing but a hole in the ground.
