THE cladding and style of this tower so reminds me of IFC in Hong-Kong

so i'm finding it hard to be so excited about it, especialy since IFC looks more sexy

something like been there, saw that before...

but i will be in Canton next january...maybe i will be amazed

The set backs on this are very clearly distinct from IFC, I'm not sure I understand the comparison.

What a monster. The Ctf and the TV tower reminds me of the gate effect of Ifc and ICC in Hongkong.

I was near CTF today. What a beautiful building. Instantly one of the best skyscrapers in the world.
