Don't know, but the last time I've checked this thread it was not risen, so that's why I am saying that it looks better with it

Out of all the rendering of this tower I've seen so far, they all had spire.

Did I mention renders? I said "last time I checked" which obviously refers to the construction.
Anyway..

To be honest, I was speaking to the rest of the thread, not you in particular..

This tower is going to look so good once the paintwork is done. Any estimates on how long it should take to paint this beauty?

I cannot believe the oriental pearl tower only comes up to the base where the skinny antenna starts, its so cool. I have to go to GZ and take a look!

Yep, totally agree, this tower is just gorgeous! I think it's quite possible that this is one of those classic designs that may well become instantly recognisable around the world ... kinda like what the Eiffel Tower is to Paris, Big Ben to London, etc.

they are approximately the same height, I suppose they could overtake each other because of heat expansion, so one isn't neccesarily higher than the other all the time.
