Technically, I think it is more challenging to construct the full circle. Also, the change would add a bit more space to the tower and still look good.

No, SWFC uses a concrete structure, for post-9/11 security reasons.

No, SWFC uses a concrete structure, that is, a "concrete silo" central core, for post-9/11 security reasons.

I saw a programme about it in... I think it was discovery channel. They said the skybridge was add due to the China-Japan relations. I take it that it must of course be same reason the hole is now being covered even more. Too bad though, it could'v been my favourite... I guess I'll stick to Turning Torso insted
