I just love the futuristic look of this building. The closest thing to that Jetsons cartoon since the Space Needle!

Awesome, most scaffolding gone, nearing completion. Is there an official date for when it is due to be completed and open for business?

Beautiful......if I may say, a modern interpretation comes to mind of the 1964 New York World's Fair observation pavilion towers...
