That's the whole point of this thing. It's not being built for you to look at, it is being built to transmit TV signals.

Are Chinese cities doing anything to sort out their air pollution problems? Just wondering, because the city scapes would look so much better with all these amazing towers being built

Very nice development btw

the main deck is approx 440m high.
fyi- its 35m dia at top and 53m at base. The middle section narrows to 16m dia with internal concrete shaft being 9m dia.

The construction of Guangzhou new TV station will start soon. It will be located near this TV tower.

Since it is the raining seaon in Guangzhou, the construction has been delayed a little bit during the last several weeks and they need to catch up with the schedule
