I hope that I have money to buy the condo behind the TV tower.
That is called "Pearl River Empire City", I guess the price is around $2,200-2,500 USD per sq. Anyone who live in those buildings can have an excellent view of the Guangzhou skyline

I hope that I had a long zoom lense so I can take a closer and clear picture at that time.

For a TV tower, there are only two major functions.
1. Broadcasting TV signals
2. Obversion.

As for Guangzhou TV tower, the external steel structure should already provide a good stability for the whole building so the center cube doesn't need to be huge.

Btw, I think the center cube+external steel structure looks bigger than the CN tower.

You're right, it is only used for a couple of different things. It won't be constantly occupied at all levels or anything so no wonder it's so skinny.
