Yes, that area will look simply stunning when all the towers are completed!

Sorry, I should have been more specific. I was referring to the one under construction, but thanks for the additional info anyway.

For those wondering, the core's now ~360 metres up, with the frame at ~330.

You're a tad too high there!

The core is at ~300m, and the steel at ~285m.

And actually GZ Fortune is actually 2 plots in front of Leatop, the picture is strange though because it makes it look like it's right behind Leatop. Angles are deceiving!

can't believe it is already at 300m, wasn't expecting that so early until the core is topped out will feel like a very short time with that speed.

Man, what a cool cluster. Seriously, Guangzhou is on the way to overtake Shanghai. The CTF is already one of my favourite supertalls U/C, it has so much class.
Generally speaking, Guangzhou's skyline is really underrated. It should be in everyone's top 10, easily.

Oops, I accidentally went to the next one. No wonder I couldn't find the 300 metre party anywhere.

Would Park Hyatt also be lighted because the R&F Center is also lighted and it will look kind of strange having a dark tower in the middle of two bright towers ?

Well the Park Hyatt isn't complete, it almost is, but not all the way. Though I am sure it will have some type of lighting scheme.

I like it how every part of Guangzhou gets light up at night, even the trees!
