Even the difference in the past 2-3 years has been very drastic! They're building a completely new CBD!

why, he/she is stating his/her personal opinion. in my opinion the tower is amazing but that is his/her opinion. remove the post if you must but baning is not necessary there. back to the tower. is the lighting on every night in the downtown or just on special occaisions. i'd imagine there would be special lights for special occaisions like coloured lights but is there plain lights for normal nights. and is there a light show on a normal night.

Agree about respecting people's opinion, also judging from his or her avatar, I don't think we should be so worked up by someone's (sometimes questionable) taste.

Well, in contrast with China there is freedom of speech here, but I don't like people who say something is ugly without proper motivation either.

That is just sick, looking straight down 100s of meters with just a thin sheet of glass protecting you from a long fall down.

and in melbourne's eureka tower and Sydney's Centrepoint tower.

but does it cost extra to go use this platform, like, do you pay a fee to go to the observation level then maybe a surcharge to use the platform?

there are more and more platforms made with glass floor nowadays. but the twist here is certainly unique and makes the platform even more interesting.
