cant agree. this one IS by far the best tv-tower. cn-tower is only interesting because of its height. without that he looks like every other tv-tower on the world. this one is something unique.

It was me and i completely stand by my statement, the cn tower is a spike with a donut on the top, it looks the same as every obseration tower that came before it, and most that have come since, the fact that its tall doesnt make it attractive. This is intricate, interesting, unique, attractive and apart from anything else biggger then CN. I dont think many people will agree with your statement there, this IS what i call beautiful, the CN tower is NOT.

When this has been built and gained recognition amongst more than just the obsessive skyscraper geeks like ourselves i reckon if you show anyone a picture of this and one of CN the vast majority will vote this as the most attractive.

Um actually I beg to differ. I think you're just blinded by biasedness just because the CN Tower is in the same country as you!

As everyone else outside of Canada would say, this tower is going to be much more elegant than the CN Tower.

The only thing I can confirm is that the construction of Guangzhou TV tower is 10 times more difficult than that of CN tower

Should be 2-3 days ago.

I visited the Guangzhou Pearl River New City last week and it was really impressive. Actually there are lots of skyscrapers photographers in Guangzhou, but they only post pictures in Chinese forums.
