I swear I really didn't mean to do so...
I just thought the games' banner on the cart go along quite well with the tower...

And come on... I wouldn't do that for a '04 model! ewww! That's old!

From Al Kubaisi (the flame tested):



With 10 more days to go until the Asian games, this tower will look great. Watch out people 10 more days to go!

These cagey structures look awesome at night, but kind of harsh on the eyes during the day. I'm thinking Guangzou will probably rate about the same.

What is the large balcony going to be used for? This tower is gorgeous and I knew very little about it. Looks great at night with the lighting effects.
