The circle looked really nice, but if they dont like circles they should just not have anything because that squarish thing is ugly.

At least it's still creative. There aren't a whole lot of skyscrapers with big holes at the top. I can think of kingdom centre in riyadh, but that's about it. Anyway, I've grown to somewhat like the square. Unfortunately, there will be no more internal ferris wheel. It might be a little diffucult to make one that is a square.

The base is what I look at while eating sushi across the street.

You're still right.

Nice update.

The iluminated crown on top of Jin Mao looks GREAT. I can see a column of iluminated windows on the top part (Hotel). Is there a panoramic lift or emergency exits?

BTW, I'm somehow dissapointed from the quality of a DSLR picture.

In the last update the bamboo scaffolding on one of the corners had gone up a little way, so I think next update we'll see the rest going up.
