Yay. My first post ever. The scale of this thing is starting to freak me out. To put it in perspective, I checked the height of one of our tallest iconic buildings here in Montreal, QC. So the current progress of the Guangzhou TV Tower is just about as tall as:

Place Ville Marie - 188m

This TV tower is so tall and beautiful and will be a landmark for Guangzhou. Any update?

Great pics vanhenrik, but too mega-large. Great for seeing construction works close-up though

Anyway, I resized them for everyone's easier viewing!

One of my friends just joined a company which is located at the Pearl River New City and the window of her office is just facing the TV tower directly...
