This building really has a large core. Nice building, but really filthy weather.

Waow

Impressive project, and its construction works are going so fast. Really a good addition to Guangzhou's skyline.

This picture looks like Burj Dubai at the background... it could be a postcard of Dubai if the yellow gantry crane doesn't have written in chinese text.
