Thanks for that photo drew.magoo, the tower looks so incredible in that photo, it looks tall as burj dubai, keeping in mind that the renders do exaggerate many things.

Is the top of the tubing topped out yet? the renders show very angled top, but the current progress shows rather flatter angle of the top.

the tubing is topped out, thats just a really old render
i got it from like the fifth page of the thread :P
its interesting, i think that render was distorted
if you look, the decks inside are slanted when they should be perfectly level

OK this might be a stupid question but I gotta ask. Exactly whats the use for TV tower these days? Aren't most TV broadcasted via satellites or from cables under the ground? Or is this tower for those people who use TVs with antennaes?

The tower will be 454 meters tall and is known as the Guangzhou TV & Sightseeing Tower. Inside the sightseeing tower there is a group of climate floors with gardens. The functions of different floors will be made according to their different climate districts and the floors will be named after their climate districts.

A large exhibition hall will occupy the first floor while a 3D movie theater of the desert will be situated 95m above the ground level. A prairie garden in the third public floor, 195m above ground level and a tropics quick dining room at 310m. A temperate zone area and a hotel will occupy the fifth floor, 345-350m above ground, while tundra luxurious dining rooms will occupy the sixth floor, 430m above ground level. 450m above ground will a small city square, known as the North Pole Square be. From the roof above the square a antenna will stretch to 610m.
