Huh? How can you love the design of a structure, but hate the waste of the space it occupies?? You can't have one without the other.

I think this is a fantastic tower. Especially with its lighting effects. I cannot wait for it to be complete. I hope it'll be ready for New Years. What a sight that will be. I can't wait to see those photos!

Hi all.

I too think this is a fantastic design. I also agree with the statement that this tower belongs in China. I've been watching this one from the start. Nice to see it getting close to completion. Some great updates from inside the structure - hats off to the photogs.

Hi Todd.

Yes I meant to say close to top out - I am aware completion is still a year away.
