Haha I was only kidding; of course it isn't practical.
Although, all you need to do is kick it at a raised angle, previously calculated using the acceleration due to gravity, and let gravity pull it down enough to go through

Hm I see, no matter, you simply aim for the lower end of the far side of the hole, obtained by giving the ball a considerable amount of side-spin, and let the deflection do the rest for you.

If only there was a player capable of such a kick...but with the aid of SFX, everything goes.

If there's a 35 MPH Wind and you use what is called Kentucky Windage; it can be done.

Outer cladding is almost equal to the height of second observatory (~440m) of SWFC

So well timed out! The outer cladding has about 5 floors left to go up, while the descending cladding support structure above the truss belt levels has about the same number floors to complete...

It's far more "personable" - for lack of a better word - at street level than from afar (i.e. across the river). Have there been any good photos of the actual base? Or does the fence obstruct that view? I've been hoping it's more handsome than SWFC's entrance, which has always made me think of a hotel.

It does ring many bells, everything in Puxi is incremental infill development. Have you seen the infill redevelopment of old centers of Nanjing, Wuxi, Chongqing, Dalian, Shenyang, Guangzhou and Shenzhen. That's definitely not softly softly.
