Agreed. Whenever the last time you visited .

I'll go on a holiday from SSC and *gasp* look another section has gone up. It's the most dramatic way to experience construction.

I adore NYC's art deco towers and most of my favorites are from there, but i can already tell this will be my new favorite.
What a stunning design and tower.
