I has that same majestic soaring feel to it as the old WTC towers did. I simply Love it.

Not just the best new... but the best period.

Well, that is a bit of stretch, but it is very elegant. The towers directly around this one support the design perfectly.

I agree the CTF tower fits in its surrounding perfectly. To me, this tower ALONE does not look that much impressive but it is located seamlessly at the right location---Guangzhou CBD.

The aerial shot reminds me of Montreal with Mount Royal and St Lawrence river! However, Guangzhou is at a different scale altogether.

Hands down.. THIS is my FAVORITE of the latest towers in China. Really love the cladding! And as someone said before.. it sure reminds me of the true twin towers.
And btw.. Guangzhou does not look like a typical BIG chinese city.. seems to have a lot of green spaces, trees and great looking plazas. Never been there.. but it sure seems a great city and with a clearer development plan.

I would love to see a night pic of this tower when it gets all lit up!
Anyone from Guangzhou that can make me happy? (not a sexual innuendo!)

Thank you Oasis!!

I guess this tower is still a long way to be fully ready and occupied.. even the fast paced chinese workers know that this is a masterpiece of a tower and as such they must take their time for perfection xD.

And what a great plaza. Feel bad for the birds though xD

I'm excited to see what kind of lighting they incorporate for the tower. Every skyscraper in Guangzhou has it's own unique lighting so I can't wait to see monster will transform the night-scape of the city.
