a place where you can dwarf the skyscraper by just standing there. There's no need for any observation deck in HK skyscrapers is there?

Stunning photos and impressive buildings.
The newly constructed building seems impressive, beautiful design, simple but very good taste.

Maybe if you read the thread, you'd know when and why.

It will be completed in 2010.

It's taking so long because the tower is being released in stages, as opposed to completing the whole thing and then unveiling it.
