I love the lights they installed at the city centre near the tower. Looks stunningly beautiful at night.

Walking through the central axis during the evening is just like going to Disneyland.

well it reached its full height, so will not look much bigger in the end, although of course the cladding also has an effect on that for a bit.

What a beauty,, this is just so Impressive, and the height is just "average" in China,, in the USA it would be Mind boggling.. Never in my life have I seen a rooftop this High. A Pure 90 meter's taller than Sears/Willis.. Just a Beautiful Skyscraper.
I may be wrong, But is this Now 3rd tallest roof in the World,, Right? Burj,, ST, and this surpasses MCT?

I'm with You this is going to be the "norm" in China,, This has 0 coverage, and it's just a behemoth!!!!!
Eric I respect you a lot, but if this was going up in the UK, Europe,or the USA, it would have some coverage.
This thing dwarfs anything on all continents, except Asia, and some broadcast material in the Americas.

That's an amazingly stunning tower. Makes me want to come & visit Guangzhou. Last time I was there was 1994
