You should know that Guangzhou is the capital of the chinese province of Guangdong which houses 10 times the population of Hong Kong (Hong Kong itself not included). That is 70,000,000 people we're speaking of.

I'm curious how far up the crane can jump with the spire rapidly narrowing toward the top. Is it gonna be the use of helicopter soon?

I think the crane would stop jumping when it hits the roof? The spire itself would be too weak to support the crane itself.

second photo shows much taller and more henge GTT, compared to west tower. Some may never find out that west tower is actually bigger in general size.
