I noticed that as well! Though the sides aren't actually holding the building up, like the twins, it does look eerily reminiscent of them. I like this building alot.

Starting to like it already.

And this WTC building does strike a resemblence to the NY ones.

I doesn't look like a supertall to me. Maybe because of its almost conical shape and wide footprint.

Yes, it just seems like an 800 footer. Beijing needs a little more supertalls.

Woah, those are awesome. Beijing looks very nice with all those buildings. Is the building completed then?

Beautiful building. Beijing has come a long way thanks to the olympics, and now, this tower.

Nice picture. Will the floors go up the the roof or will there be a crown? For some reason I like it right now. The rest would look nice being a crown.

beijing should bot build so many constructions, because it is the political center of china. I think the government should concern the background of the city just like Washington DC
