excellent shots. Guangzhou will have a top 10 skyline if the CBD expands a bit more.

Man, that is a proper supertall. Who can complain here when we ended up getting a 1700+ft. roof?

I feel like I've said it here before, this is such a "professional" looking buildings. Clean, smart, looks built for business.

Who can complain here at all?

If you want your mind slightly blown one day, try going to SSP and compare the list of tallest buildings built before 2000 with the first page of this subforum. In the past decade alone, I think we've got a solid three-digit number of buildings who'd have hit the worldwide top ten at the turn of the millennium.

I know. Amazing, isn't it? This would have been the tallest building in the world ten years ago.

Flew over this area 2 days ago while making a stop at Guangzhou for my next flight. What a surprise! The plane took a perfect landing path to see these giants. The city looks amazing at night.

Wow,,, Croomm and Oasis, plenty of wallpaper,, Great shot's guy's showing the beauty and the size of this beast...
GREAT UPDATE'S..
I AM amazed at the size, and how it dwarf's the, (well, pretty green, once very tall looking IFC,) and really challenges CT Tower,, this is a beast, and "doesn't get a whole lot of attention!" People should realize this is a gem and should get noticed.

awesome pic's LU, as always,,, Guangzhou looks so clean, that picture with the kid's, the river, the skyscraper's and the stadium says it all.
Look's fun and something's to be very excited about, especially if you're a citizen or a young person.
