Its going to over take CN Tower as worlds tallest tower on completion!
CN has had title since 1976.
congrats guangzhou
Right words CULWALLA

Congratulation to Guangzhou!

Regarding the really fast construction it would be nice to see the construction progress since the start of it in a short diagram.

I think all of us would appriciate if someone could make a diagram or briefing in picture to show this progress.

Wow that tower is phenomenal! Looks great sitting in the clouds. Who are the architects again? I have a feeling it is something like Make or Hopkins?

Looked it up the architects are: Mark Hemel & Barbara Kuit. Haha I was completely wrong! Although there has been numerous proposals for towers like this over the years, Massimilano Fuksas has a very similar proposal.
