all these u/c buildings at the moment, it seems that when they are at 1000 ft its a height so often these days you dont even appreciate it!

is it just me...
or do the elevator doors coming out of the core look large... like 15 feet tall?

There are four elevator doors in the core in the 'exposed' area above the floor plates.. extrapolate that thru the floor plates and it yeilds about 28 floors.. 300m = 28 floors? or because this is just a t.v. tower, the 'floors' aren't true floors??

anyone?

They cannot be doors as you wrote they are too large. They maybe like that to save some material.

Hi everybody,

After nearly 12 months of following the several threads here I thought it is time to join to the community now.
And I just want to say that it's very impressive to see that this building is rising so fast.
Beneath the Burj Dubai it is one of my favorite buildings at the moment and it looks so slim and graceful just like a beautiful lady.

Current view from GZ tv tower at 300m. The left building u/c is the Guangzhou West Tower. Most of the buildings along this central line will be supertall skyscrapers. The building at the end of the line is citic plaza.
