Believe me some of them "new" members add so much value and contribution to this forum that equals senior members! At least they are active and participating ...

Now let's end this out of topic chat .. it was fun while it lasted ... now back to the TOWER

Not to worry China. It seems that the cables stop far before any of the actual observatory floors. Those inside the tower will have beautiful views, even to the surrounding district since the cables are only in the Tower Plaza. But true from the ground, I think we'll have some very beautiful photos and compositions. On-axis should be straight and clear from all four directions to the tower, but off-axis will be interesting.

If the foundation is completed, then it should start rising above ground now right?

Or there is something left to be done before starting to rise in height?

First, they should fill the basement floors, and then tower should start to rise.

It could easily be 2018 before something rises above ground level.
