Now a fantastic view from West Tower.
No time is wasted to include the coming towers into the night panorama.
I wonder about the massive illumination of Leatop Plaza's roof segment. These randomly colored pixels look a bit unreal... (reminds me of the distortion filter at photoshop).
Is this some kind of videoscreen or a chain of lights curtain?

Yes, building it is stopping till middle December when Asian Games finish from what I've heard, source is Guangzhou government

Anyway this measure is quite light after they have been shutting all discos/KTV's at 2am since summer to show better image of the city, they are taking things pretty seriously

Why are the cross beams of the building sliding in one direction but not in both direction?

They said the same thing for construction in Shanghai for the Expo, even though buildings still did exterior work (cladding). Good example of this would be the IFC, which was half clad back in May when the expo started and is now almost completeted.

Because that's the design.

What's going up in that massive hole in the ground in the foreground in the last picture?

With so many office towers going up, how much are pre-leased? What is the vacancy rate? I hope it will not be like Beijing with many see through (vacant) buildings.
