The complexity of that crown is incredible. Alle those pices of steel have to be lifted 600 meters and have to fit exactly.

I would have never thought I'd ever see a ~420m tower look so small and insignificant.

Is ST going to be in that shade of Green? Looks pretty good that way. Actually looks Great, or is that just fake, and someone's suggestion? I'm no computer wizard, so help me out.

It's photoshopped. The lighting scheme calls for RGB LED lighting to be in the notches of the tower and crown.

I first thought it was just something wrong with the camera, but if you look closely, the bottom portion that's half-covered by another building is the silver it's supposed to be. So I guess it is photoshopped or there is something REALLy wrong with the camera.

Great shot, but it was ruined by Bar Rouge getting in the shot. Barf!

Actually, on that particular picture, ST look like it has an infinite height. You can see the end of Jin Mao and SWFC but not for ST. It's amazing how this tower looks like.

They should build skybridges along those lines.

Metal fabric usually has a more generous margin of error than less malleable materials, e.g. glass and stone, not to mention that dimensions of metal parts change because they are entirely dependent upon temperature.
