Yes, and I don't think they change the board every floor.

Think we are in floor 61 or 62.

When will the damn facade start???

I remeber when I was 12 and I went to Chicago. Great city, tons of memories, but the one thing that sticks out in my mind was seeing the Sears Tower from something like 25 miles away. Burj Dubai will probably be visible until the slope of the earth blocks it. Friggin amazing

Everybody please join me in an honorary salute to the soon-to-be dethroned CN Tower.

It was fun while it lasted Toronto!

When it is currently at 228m it only needs 14m to surpass woolworth building so this baby will surpass it in about 2 a half weeks!And only 49m and it has the half height of CN tower!
