Mr Gattberserk, Please forgive me of asking but you make me really wonder what do you mean; you are saying BD is the 76th tallest structure of all time?

Took this pic a month ago from the parking of UP Tower (Is that what it's called? The building next to Capricorn tower ), shows how massive the Index is/will be

There isnt just one one antenna that rises to around that hight, there are many. The one in Dakota is simply the tallent currently and Warszawa's was the tallest of all time.

Does anyone know the total floor area of the Index, it's so massive..!!

I'm guessing, but it looks like 2.5 to 3 million sq.ft. can anyone verify this....???

The Index looks like it could survive a direct hit by an F5 tornado. Very strong looking building.
