Wow, nice pics! They are building it so fast!

Btw, which one will be the best TV tower in mainland China, this one or the east pearl tower in Shanghai? I know Beijing, Tianjin, Chengdu and Shenyang also have nice TV towers.

Em...the opera and musium look great, better than my expectation.

Finally Guangzhou has some great designs. Hope Guangzhou can keep this trend and doesn't ruin the last land, Pearl river new city, in Guangzhou's downtown area.

Btw, can anyone tell me what the average price of a condo in peral river new city is right now?

That's an interesting and massive steel grid in the foreground of some recent pics here (like toddhubert's first)... what building is being built there? And is it topped out already, or the base of a skyscraper?

I haven't read all the posts here, but the render on the first page doesn't really make it look 2000ft... maybe 1000, but not 2000; this tower deserves a better render.

2000ft is with spire included which is 610m but the actual tower topping out is 450m
