Not at all. Google Earth is just always a few years behind on most places.

I think it should be called a building complex, rather than just a building.

Still it is very impressive.
Once the facade is complete, each building will blend together
to create one motherf***er of a skyscraper!

Yea - 16 million sq/ft is pretty insane.

Plucking the moon right from the sky to attach it onto the tip would be easier than carrying it up the building.
