The TV tower, the old CBD and the new CBD of Guangzhou will be at the same straight line
It fits the core concept of Chinese philosophy ---Balance

Old CBD
Citic Plaza(392M)
Some buildings around 200M - 300M
|
|
New CBD
West Tower(432M) East Tower(500M+)
Some buildings around 300M - 400M
|
|
Pearl River
|
|
Guangzhou TV tower(610M)

Old CBD of guangzhou




New CBD of guangzhou, most building are still u/c

That has got to be one of the most beautiful "functional" towers out there, much better than the Pearl, IMO. Looks to possibly be an observation deck up there, too,

Seem like this is not alone at 610 meters TV Tower. There's other one, the New Tokyo Tower/Sumida Tower at 610 meters also.

I also believe this might look like a Kobe Tower in Japan. Can't wait to see what it look like in reality!
