I think it a preparation site for the Guangzhou Bridge widening project. It use to be a parking lot for the Asian games.

True as well. Zhujiang New City has some of the bestest skyscraper designs ever. I think at this moment (or at least before Shenzhen Qianhai CBD is built) it is the best CBD in the world.

Poor CITIC Plaza. Once one of the tallest buildings in the wold and the dominate object in its skyline is now just by its lonesome as all of these new skyscrapers are popping up.

Being alone has its good sides, it is the tallest in its close neighborhood and therefore still makes it kind of special.
