The tower was topped out in 2009 and it became operational in 2010 for the 2010 Asian Games. The tower briefly held the title of tallest tower in the world, replacing the CN Tower, before being surpassed by the Tokyo Skytree. It was the tallest structure in China prior to the topping out of Shanghai Tower in 2013.

The Canton Tower has an architectural lighting that was designed by Arup Lighting. The architectural feature lighting is based on the principle that the tower should not be “lit up” but “radiate a glow” at night. Seven thousand LED light fixtures light the rings of the tower’s structure each from underneath, to form a continuous glow.
