Yes, and then put the earth back where it belonged. Construction started this year.

I've been living just round the corner for a year and a half and there has been work going on for all that time. It's only been above ground for a few weeks though and work has definitely sped up a lot.

And they will. Just wait until the end. The Chinese won't get that close to the Taiwanese and not beat them. Politics my friends.

The question of the observatory is weather it will meet or exceed CN Tower's 447m high observatory. It will be close. I think on this department, Union Square 7's top floor will surpass CN's Space Deck.

The whole time? How come I remember a perfectly flat lawn all the way up to last year, when they started (slowly) digging the foundation hole?
