I'm amazed how fast this thing is rising considering it's girth. It's five to six times broader than the towers going up in NY yet this thing is rising faster than any of them. Impressive.

The real cold still has to come...?


In The Netherlands, we don't have real winters anymore, for at least 10 years.
But when I sometimes see on TV about winters in north-east USA...

2 days until December and 60 degrees in Chicago with no snowfall anywhere in the United States. Global warming is real!

You guys are talking about not having any snowfall, let alone the ones that stay. Ask Pohtija how it has affected us peeps here in the north, right Pohtija?

Yeah it's cold and dark here at this time of year like always.. We have had snow couple of times already but then lots and lots of rain has taken it all away.. And did I mention it is dark.. Yeah, really dark, especially when there is not yet snow on the ground, day turns in to night like at four p.m. (its a bummer)
..but we have warm homes and lots of consumer electronics to keep us alive and (somewhat) happy.

P.S. This Supertall will be magnificent and tall!! Taller than Trump Tower at least.

The building to the right is very attractive. Simple design but nicely done. Sleek and good glass.
