Yes I refer to the shape, not the way it is constructed. The opening at the top and the shape itself is almost completely exact.

But nevertheless, the Guangzhou TV Tower is much higher and looks nice.

so since theyve already started working on the spire, what part of it are people saying is gonna be erected in march?
will it be the physical antenna? or will they just work on the stand now and put up the rest in a few months?
