What i find cool about all this lighting is that they even put lights on buildings that aren't completed, something i haven't really seen before. At the rate Gz is going with the lighting, it can surely compete with Hong Kong soon.

I don't understand why this is still listed as being U/C, it has looked topped out for the past couple of months. Are they thinking of adding height to the antenna?

I guess it's because the pod riding part is still U/C. You can see in this pic there's a small crane on the top.

With the gravitation ride being installed in the inside of the base of the antenna, I wonder if those grey panels that were are seeing are panels of glass with plastic still stuck on them. If this is the case it would be such a cool ride.

What an incredible lighting show! And it's only going to get bigger and better once the rest of the towers u/c are finished.

That pod ride looks so cool! Not for the squeamish though.

Hi kraper.

Topped out is a far cry from completed. Many projects are still U/C for a year or more after top out. In the case of the BK it may very well be more than 2 years.
