Slightly terrifying, though I think it compliments the city quite nicely.

This one is the best pic! Does anyone know when the construction in the central island starts? I guess a big plaza and a park will be built there, right?

The first pic reminds me of Pudong in 1994 very much! Now Guangzhou TV tower is just then Oriental Pearl tower.
Maybe a few years later, lots of skyscrapers will arises in the background. who knows.
