Ahhh yeah, the rawche is still not done yet. I was there for new years and most of January, and there was still construction on it, esp by the pigeon rocks.

Here are some pics from my trip:

I have many more pictures, but they're not building related- more like landscape/beauty heh.

They will not get a permit for the helipad. The Civil Aviation Authority will not approve it because it has no escape route in case it misses its landing. It might hit the hotel. Helipads are normally located above the highest point of a building.
