The main structure itself, is very unique yet refined. I am not a big fan of large groups of masterplanned tower blocks however...usually creates an uninviting environment. Thanks for the pics!

I like it how they put pictures of lush green field of paradaise in the background when they are actually ugly buildings.

I didn't like it at first time,but now I'm liking it more and more.The impact of this building will be huge,and there will be even taller towers on each side to enhance the gateway effect!
BTW are there any plans for the 2 taller towers located around?

Anyone got any construction photos for this Gate of the Orient building? The building should have been completed by now.

You can't upload pics, you have to host them in another website. Try imageshack.us, no registration needed.
