It is obvious to do so, the tower is too high I almost get sick when going up more than 30 floors in any building

I know it was so exciting to be there...

Thanks again for sharing those pictures with us

Yea Extreme Engineering, nice show, but they talk primarily about all the tiles on the building.

Charles, you're the one who has the answer, since you have visited the construction site lately

No, I think it just because the new installed glass are cleaner than the old ones... Like the new installed glass of the top of the tower
