This pic is beautiful! Really shows the booming Guangzhou and has a real modern asia feel. Beautiful boom town and an amazing rare view of the skyline.

Wouldn't it have internal cladding though? Like the Former WTC.

the renders are so much better to look at. in reality it looks fat in the most dramatic part of the tower(the tapered midde) which sort of ruins the effect it would have had

Does it look fat?
Btw, a render is just a render not a real photo.

The comparison between CN and TV tower helps us understand how big the TV tower is actually. Thanks Culwulla.

From the diagram, the highest habitable floor of CN tower and Guangzhou TV tower are nearly level, so hard to tell which is higher (looks like Guangzhou tv sightseeing tower has higher one, just!)
