IN a way, yes, the highest point is not at the joint, but at the left tower in HiTOPHi's pics.

For a building this huge and challenging, it is amazing that they built it so quickly.

ofcourse it would take longer since Toronto can't afford to construct 24/7 and paying workers overtime and don't forget in china its literally an unlimited supply of workers
