    I cannot figure out what building prime flies into and gets stuck on. My friend said it looks like the CC TV building in Beijing.

    Did a quick Google search on that building, and it bears a remarkable resemblance to the CG building in DotM. :sly2:  Granted, the building in DotM was not even close to being done "construction", and the actual building was reportedly completed in 2008-2009.

    I'm going to assume it's another "Aircraft Boneyard"-scenario. Michael Bay saw that very cool looking building in Beijing, thought it would look cool in his CGI Chicago and decided, "Hey, just plop in right there and replace that boring old regular skyscraper". Why? Because it looks cool.

    I sincerely doubt it. The (CG) building in the movie in Chicago is identical to the one in Beijing; it'd be like building another Chrysler Building, but in Vancouver. Or making a Hoover Dam in Brazil.

    Again, it was basically Bay saying "Hey, that building would look killer in the Chicago battle!"
