I think it fits Beijing's skyline well. Here's a nice Beijing CBD rendering, try to find WTC III and CCTV

Maybe its just me - but looks like there are vague elements of the old NY WTC in the design and on them construction pics - kinda cool.

I think they are trying to be conservative and non-flashy with this one.

Partly because this is going to be the tallest structure in Beijing, and they really want it to be ageless and non-debateable. It may not be flashy or spectacular, but nobody can say that its is bad either.

Another important factor is the fact that the government has been recently blamed for its wasteful spanding on outrigously expensive buildings in the recent years (the CCTV building almost got cancelled because of it). This is also a way of being low cost and making the general public happy.

it's all about politics....
