It's pretty nice for a box, especially the top with the see through type roof. And it's very tall.

From a feng shui perspective, this is one strange complex. It seems like the larger, blue building is being constructed at the expense of the shorter, darker building.

Once in a while, it is nice to see there are individuals who still "think inside of the box".

Way to go Chongquing!!
