It looks extremely awful in the render but I have a feeling it will turn out looking much better than it looks here.

Excellent pictures, the tower looks very nice from every angle. Imagine when the construction is over, it will look amazing.

Shanghai Oriental Pearl or Guangzhou TV Tower?
I like "this" one better, even if it is higher than my CN.
(but the transition from tower to antenna could have been designed better)

hmmm....i've the feeling the 355m is more accurate. you can now clearly see the middle of the main structure, until there we've 225m. now add 225m to the middle-point...i think i'm not wrong when i say that there are still arround 100m to go for the core. cul, can you make a diagram to go sure?
