CCTV Beijing - Construction Pics/Webcam

Hello from Beijing,

We are Swedish Architecture Company with a new office in Beijing, we happen to be 25 floors above construction site of CCTV Tower, with a direct view into the site.

We were planning to put up a webcam and a series of weekly pics so others can what this amazing building grow.

In addition if people need other pics of the growing Central Business District of Beijing then feel free to contact us, we are in the middle of it!!

Cheers

Jonathan

Cool website.
I just talked with my friend who's working in Beijing CBD, so many futuristic architectures are going up!

Heja Sverige. It's a very cool idea. Thanks a lot for putting up this webcam and for announcing it here.
I'm sure you will get plenty of other picture requests.

Fantastic idea, we have so few construction updates from CCTV anyway. You can see some pics on the "official" under construction thread on this section, here.

Any target date on its completion. Sort of confused about it. You'd figure they'd aim for the Olympics... having the world's media plugged in there. But it seems they're late starting and what I've read is the original completion date was 2008/2009.

The original completion date was in 2008, before the olympics, but the construction start was delayted about a year so right now i am not sure when its going to be completed.

This is great. I was wondering what was going on with the CCTV Building. I think it's one of the most unique buildings to be built.
