Yes, I suspect we have a gameplayer in our midst who hasn't had the effect he/she desired and so has decided to up the ante.

This has got to be one of the most beautiful structures in the world. Absolutely amazing-its elegant, grandiose, towering, gorgeous. Props to the architect. Amazing tower. Amazing.

What about replacing madison square garden with big apple dome



I love aqua. Pictures from street level are amazing.
I think is better to keep the 'Big Apple' as a name that signifies New York City not an actual building or dome, etc...

^ Lol what is wrong with you. Amsterdam is not horrible. No one really cares where you live and it doesn't make sense to make Amsterdam look bad. This is not the right place to place such comments. You'd better talk to an administrator about that.

LMFAO. Taking the piss out of someone on an internet message board is not "identity theft."

When finished, will this one rank second after ESB in the top floor rank? If we only count occupied indoor floors, I.E. not mechanical.

Nice updates guys. Thanks for keeping this thread on track. I hate it when people like CharlotteJ post such crap. Especially in skyscraper threads. There is an about the forums section for that kind of stuff.
