6.10 from gaoloumi.com
the core is speeding up again~~
after it's over 200m, it's much more easily seen in far view.

When it's completed, with the Canton Tower it'll look spectacular!

In fact imagine the top 20 tallest buildings in 2020 in one city. Only then would it be so spectacular that I may as well faint.

Some pictures of these week. Sorry for the quality, I didn't have time to visit properly the area and all pics are taken from a bus or taxi.

No idea. I was only three days on the city visiting a fair. I didn't have time for anything but work.

Yep. If you look closely, you can see where it says IFC at the top of the building in the first photo.

The IFC is such a freaking goreous tower. Best supertall in China IMO. Can't wait to see Chow Tai Fook standing beside it.

I hope they change the lettering one day. Who was the genius that thought brown would be the best colour for it?
