Hi all.

Second tallest in the world - a great accomplishment.

The design is so elegant in its simplicity.

I wonder why they didn't construct it like the Tokyo Sky Tree ? Here rust is allowed to happen before painting/coating whereas on the tree the weld areas remain protected from the weather untill coating is completed.

Anyway this has been one of my faves since construction started and one I have been saving pics of.
1373 pics so far.

Totally agree, Fury. It's an awesome achievement for Guangzhou/China. The tower's design is truly beautiful and IMO, truly iconic.

I wonder how they will go about removing the rust at those heights though?

The TV tower looks like it's almost finished. I guess all those citizens of Guangzhou will now get free TV channels soon.
