Whooaa! This thing has gotten a LOT taller since I checked in a month or so ago! Am I mistaken about that? Seems to have gotten really slender, really quick.

By the way, what's the current height?

Interesting photos. Reminds me of the Vortex that was proposed in London a while back.

Look very likely that GZ TV tower will claim the world tallest completed free-standing structure first before BD...


Den when BD surpass it, it wll still retain the title of the world tallest telecommunication tower...
