Indeed it is, the 1st reinforce level was only the equivalent of 2 stories while the the 2nd one is the equivalent of 3 stories.

According to the diagram I posted a few pages back, the top of the XXX and the super columns should reach about ~ 207m, while the core, with the new steel, seems to be at about ~222m.

That last picture is amazing Confucius!

Are there plans to plant more trees in the park? I thought all infrastructure and landscaping were completed long ago.

You mean GAINED space. Space for living, and enjoying the vista from ground level. Thank God Guangzhou does not obey to a 19th century city concept. But then people often forget that even in Manhattan you have something called Central Park (in capital letters)...

Thanks for the compliments.
The Zhujiang new town area really looks fantastic.
I've been living in the city for more than half year and I gotta say - Tianhe is nothing like the other districts. Perfect planning!

But as in other chinese cities - this is maybe too much planned. Sometimes you feel like it is a ghost territory. People must inhabit the place more

Yep. I guess distances between buildings as they are in Manhattan would not pass contemporary regulations for building density.

True that. I have had a chance to visit Guangzhou in 2011 (I'll be coming back this year). I inevitably have to compare it to Lujiazui in Shanghai. Both may look like clusters with beautiful skyscrapers from a distance but on the ground there are two rather different worlds. Zhujiang town is what can easily be described as a showcase of contemporary urban planning for a highrise business district. It's really amazing. Something I could not instantly say about Lujiazui (even if it's improving).

There are a lot of Greenland Centers and Shimao Centers along China. These are two of the most important real state companies of the country.
Chow Tai Fook is a jewelry company, based in Hong Kong, but they also have real state investments.

It has probably gone up a little from that time.
