Overall, that's true. And the construction done till summer 2010 was enormous, expecially for such an innovative design. Unfortunatelly not much has happened since September'10, otherwise the tower could be topped out for a while and show almost full cladding. It's said that some construction is going on - but It'd be nice to recognize changes on updates now.

Oh I get why they call it Infinity Tower now! Because the construction goes on, and on, and on, and on.

10-April

Electricity sucessfully connected tonight for free . No wait, there was a charge. With 100,000,000 Volts. But only one installment, and it didn't have to go through the escrow.

I have always wondered: how are such pictures taken? Did you stayed there just waiting for the moment (knowing that the lightning would happen)? Was this a "lucky" shot?

Exposure was 8 seconds. So you take about 30 shots one after the other and hope to get lucky.

this is actually only one branch of the full lightning. there is a more panoramic version of this photo under http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...&postcount=363
