Hello all. I've been here watching for quite some time, but it is only recently that I've decided to create an account. I've been watching this building in particular and have wondered "Why is this still in the U/C theads?" Does the landscaping around the building also included when it is under construction? That's the only part that is still being worked on. The building itself is finished. I've seen recent pictures on the CTBUH website of the penthouse on the top floor, the interiors are finished.

I'd really like to see some pics of the progress about the sorrundings of the tower (steps, greeneries, and so on...).

I agree. If this is to be kept in the U/C threads, I'd like to see what's going on with the landscaping.

I like the idea behind the lighting, but the execution? Eh. Just makes the stick look even skinnier.
