It was mentioned earlier in the thread that the music is from the original score of the Band of Brothers mini-series.

So, does no one know what this U/C building is (circled in yellow) ?

Can someone do us a favor and walk to that construction site and see what's posted on the wall??

Thanks a million :-)

This is simply gorgeous. This is a MUST for Shanghai, if this didn't get built it would be my greatest disappointment since Anara.

Its looks speechless.

Sad, this was going to be my favorite building ever, if constructed. But sadly canceled. :(
It would of been 655m tall or 2184 ft tall. Location would of been of course Dubai.

ANARA WHAT COULD OF BEEN THE MOST AWESOME BUILDING EVER.

cancellation of this one will be much of a blow, at least anara was released with several other taller buildings. But this wont get cancelled.
