Indeed, I think after completion this tower will truly be epic and seeing it in person will be a great experience!

Fury, thanks for all of your insightful comments, but I think you are going to have to change that signature of yours. This tower blows the burj away...imho anyway.

Hi Parson.

1 - Thank you for your kind words.
2 - I will never change my sig. I made it within days of coming to this forum and have never changed it. I truly believe what it says. That doesn't take anything away from all the other great projects.
3 - Respect. Your opinion is as important as anyones. Mine is different in that I think the height, design, and complex series of tiers makes the BK a break through structure. That it is the first freestanding structure to overtake guyed masts as mankinds tallest structure is opening the floodgates of many taller yet to come.

That said, this project is fantastic.

Peace.


Ray.

Respect fury, your reasoning is impeccable. Besides which I would never seek to argue with one who is obviously far more knowledgable than I.
Though this tower is truly awe inspiring I think. The sheer size of those supercolumns is what amazes me, and the way that they have to start them off and keep them all so exactly in alignment as they go up.......gobsmacking.
Thanks to nordschliefe and Gouken for those last pics, magnificent.
