Your right Steve, looking from that view above it would be great if they turned that barren land into a nice park.

ready for legal action
Attention Everyone,

For those who are serious about taking legal action and willing to commit financially, please PM me your contact details.

I am ready to begin legal action against SG.

Please don't contact me just to obtain information, I only require people who have decided to pursue legal action.

I have a legal background and I am only too happy to help those who require it.

not worth it. The current light is ver dull greenish neon light and hardly noticable. If that's supposed to be it, then the torch has been decapitated, and should be called a club from now. Club in the sense of stick that is.

I've not taken any pictures since I'd be too ashamed to post them. I was so looking forward to it, and expected a proper landmark feature on top. Such a nice top. Right now it's a proper disgrace.

I still give it the benefit of the doubt, but doubts are increasing every week after handover.

This is my quick mockup of The Torch. Totally inexpensive, including lighting the two mechanical floors in color costing next to nothing. Total amount maybe $25,000. Small money, big impact.




The initial idea with the video screens in the crown would have been half a Million to one Mill. dollars plus programming expenses I reckon. Could have easily been more depending on the screen quality.
