Ain't that the truth> They cheated. The top of the WTC is ugly as hell to boot. I do like the triangular facets down the sides of the building reflecting the the sun however.

What is the tall building U/C in the foreground photos 8, 9 and 10? The one closest to the phototaker? Is it going to be a supertall as well?

No other building in the world looks so enormous, I'd say. I've never expected that SWFC will look like a little brother.

Very cool to look at what is on the ground, near the base in Lowai's pics. You can see the interesting steelwork that is going to be put up there in what will be the crown of the building.
