Maybe an "Apocalypse Tower" 2012 ft. tall. Might have a hard time getting tenants though...

Anyone know why the new floor rate has slowed?

This is truly MASSIVE in person, I didn't get up close (only a few miles way from it) but it's so humongous. It feels larger than the twins.

I can't wait for this to top out.

I've got a question folks, why does 1WTC build first the steel frame, then 10 floors lower the concrete core when for example the Shanghai Tower builds first the concrete core then the steel frame? What's the difference between these two approaches?

I thought that they were bad links because of the URL. I apologize.
