I'm very suspicious of the whole thing. There's no URL provided, and for a story this large you would think that more newspapers and such would be talking about it.

I don't think the editors (let alone writers) of a professional publication would miss such an elementary grammatical mistake.

Wow it must be a huge hoax. 'Cities' is used THREE TIMES instead of 'City's'
also they use (') hash mark for feet, and 'feet' in the same sentence. IMO it is a hoax!!! Someone is JEALOUS of Signature Tower and attempting to ameliorate their jealosy!!!!!

This is an absolute lie. No other sites have mentioned this, no news of it at all. I will squash this rumor once and for all when I write protman myself. If its true then I will get a statement from them and share it with you, if not I will disprove these claims and ask to have this thread closed.

What part of this is fake do you not understan! This is not real, if you want proof email the architect, they will tell you its fake, there are no pictures, no client and no skyscrpaer. No pretty point and no building what so ever. this is fake, period.
