Is there much more height to go? Surely a tower crane is now required?

Anyone who vandalises this observation tower will pay a fine and do community service.

I love the red...but I hate it at the same time too. I think that this should have some blue LED lights put on it too so at night it turns into a cool/retro, weird-thingy.

It's not finished yet but 115 metres is not very tall, at least not compared with skyscrapers.

Seems like they slowed down recently but then they're getting to the more complex part of the project.

It's an attraction. Yes, it'll have a viewing gallery.

A quite ugly attraction. While I find the Olympic Park to be great, this is really ugly.

Actually i still cant stand the Eiffel Tower, but I personally like half of the olympic park but a lot of it is lacking substance, I dont find the stadium remotely interesting. It looks like exactly what it is, a temporary structure. I actually dont mind the Orbit, im waiting to see it finished before i decide.
