That the chinese love the golden color. When I was in China I noticed that most chinese people love those kitch styles. A bit over the top. A bit 'fake'. I came across some entrances of office buildings that almost look out of Disney world (sometimes pillars where wrapped in golden foil). I think those golden buildings fits perfectly there. If it was build in Europe of the USA (with one exception: Las Vegas) everybody would hate it.

Nice update! Although it seemed to have slowed down at the end. A great place to stay if you're gonna visit Chongqing.

Nice looking towers. For some reason the design reminds me of these two buildings in Bethesda, Maryland. Except for the spires, of course.

Sigh...if i keep pointing out liberty copies i think my fingers will fall off from all the typing. Not only that, it's like a mix of the Patronas and the Liberties, as already pointed out a million times im sure. But still, good for them. They are very...eye poping

It's too "gold" for my taste but still a good addition to the city.
