Well, the 618m article was published in July 2007. No further news so far, I don't think the height increase was accepted. Any other more recent source? Otherwise I'll change the title back to 610m.

The stadium was built for the 6th China National Games in 1990s. I believe it is the one of largest sport centers(400,000+sqm, together with basketball/swimming/soccer/baseball stadiums) in downtown areas in the world.

Below are the new stadiums for 2010 Asian Games. The first one was finished a couple of years ago, the other two are u/c

If CN Tower has 6 elevators, this one will probably have more than 6 because Guangzhou TV Tower is going to be the tallest tower and it will probably take more people than CN Tower. Also there are going to be emergency elevators. I guess that there are going to be totally 10 elevators. It depends on how many tourists that Guangzhou have IMO.

the skyscrapers.cn forum members are aware of this~
because “610 ” this number are on some political issues in china now( about fa lun gong),so take it in 618m,so no official records 。。see·the government will not easily say the reasons for this。。
SO~~some records could be found in many academic records pages and website or engineering technology companies of GTVT .but the government and official records..no way in china now
but~~i'm sure GTVT is 618m height~At the same time. I have the internal staff to the Design Institute confirmed the news
