Pollution is shit around half of the time, though I'd imagine it is a bit lower after the Olympics since people are taught to be less polluting, and not all of the pollution controls haven't been relaxed yet (odd-even license plates still in center city, relaxed in suburbs though).

Is this tower still U/C? Looks Completed to me. Or has the Grand Opening/Unveiling not happened yet? If so any ideas when that will occur.

Even the exterior is not completed yet - the cladding for the crown.

A few from during the Olympics:






The crown definitely needs some work, but all construction was stopped during the Olympics. The lighting scheme is great though.
