^no they will not

can everyone stop being so fascinated by the fact that the tubes are hollow, steel tubes of this scale always are, otherwise the weight would be ludicrous and the tower would be overengineered.

The antenna isn't that great but the roof looks interesting! I would have guessed that the roof would be filled with electrical equipment and antennas but obviously not.

i agree, with the new 500+ meter building on the other side of the river, this wont look half as impressive because it only really looks 450m high... they should make it a 600m version with no antenna.. but obviuosly construction has started so meh.... and in my opinion the 2 towers on the other side looked alot neater and better in general when they were both the same height.

This is a TV tower, so it must have antenna...Even only 450m without antenna, it is already the world's highest TV tower. If you take a look at the CN tower, it is actually less than 400m

How on earth did you come to your conclusion? If this tower is 450m to the top minus antenna, it is SHORTER than the CN Tower. The CN Tower to the top of concrete pour below the metal antenna is 457m or 1500 ft. The top observatory of CN is at 447m.

What is the exact height of the top floor of this tower?

One guy earlier posted that it is "by far the best TV/observation tower. I think CN is clearly the nicest. This thing is OK at best but hardly what you would call beautiful. I still like it but come on here.

Yes you are right, it is a small concert space up there, it will be bad for the singer, since nobody will listen what he/she sing, everybody will just looking at the view...

Its closer to line 3, there isnt any station very close, you have to walk a couple of blocks... Its just south (on the opposite side of the river) of the Zhujiang new city development, surely you cant have missed that?
