What are those white tube columns made out of?, are they steel tubes filled in with concrete? or something else

no, they're not filled with concrete, only steel. the weight would be a bit too massive i think

question with the steel structure. With the heavy pollution and acidic rain, what are they gonna do with rust?

it'll be a bitch keeping this tower white after it's done.

Venisusky - superb update - a great way to start my day.

Big Dog - those are priceless shots , those of us not from Guangzhou would never have seen these, or appreciated some of the challenges without you.
