OMG , what a big giant! It looks somehow bigger and taller than the BD in those last pics. Because it's one long vertical line and BD gets slimmer and slimmer how higher you go. Guangzhou is really putting itself on the map.

You should remember that there will be tons of biggies right behind the "twin" towers, some of them well above 300m.

in that picture, the the view where camera is looking at is about where CITIC plaza is, that kite formation would've been invincible if the two towers were identical.

yea, are there still chances for them to be identical or is it certain that they'll put up some ugly, unfitting, boxy, hideous thing.
