That crane is for that building. It just went up like a day ago.

11 Times Square: 40 floors - 600 feet

Actually, your example is not exageration of what really happens. Consider the Freedom Tower. Their first floor above the atrium is number 20 (or 21)! Sorry - I couldn't think of a Chinese example where they actually skipped so many.

Damn, those "Dustin's Pictures" are sexy. The tower doesn't look bad at all.

This one actually cuts off 250' of the building (unless you don't count the 400' antenna as part of the building, in which case this one should not be in the 'Supertalls' thread).

Look at that huge mass of brown yuck in the foreground! I realize those structures are from a prior era, but still. Cut off the buildings in the back, and you've got third world conditions. Wow!

Most of those brown brick buildings are beautiful structures dating from the early 1900's. When seen up close, they have magificent details, columns and stone work.

There are no "brown yuck" buildings in the picture. That glamorous view beats easily all the Dubaish look-at-me-I'm-dazzling views you can see nowadays all over the world.
