this building for me is tied with the shanghai tower for most beautiful in the world, but it looks a million times better than the tallest in the US.

^ Yea this Zhujiang Newtown is absolutely fantastic. Except for a bunch of some of the world's best skyscrapers there are a lot of residential towers as well and, of course, the park in between absolutely works out really well. People go there after work and during the weekends. There is also a street full of bars and restaurants just around the corner. It's so much different compared to Shanghai's Lujiazui which is deserted after 6pm and during the weekends.

I said it before and I'll say it again. It's the best CBD in the world at this moment and perhaps for at least another 10 years (before Shenzhen Qianhai is built).

^Just Incredible how quick it rises,, the cladding is just right behind. And it looks Great in the large scale photo with Canton tower, and the green cladded IFC.

Picture's really don't do these building's justice,, The only real tall building's I've ever seen in person was the World Trade Center, (originals) and the Sears/Willis,, and they were "mind boggling,, I can't even imagine how tall they look in person.

That shorter tower U/C in the foreground will look pretty cool.

I agree. Another building with high quality cladding. Like so many in Guangzhou.
