Hmmm... If they resume construction, what will they do with the top dome?
Will it be gold like to state tower? or silver?

This state tower's younger sister is one of the most wanted-to-be-completed indeed.

I hope the project is revived soon - it's a real eyesore.
The structural system seems completed except for the dome at the top, which will bring the total height to about 164 metres.
