Most likely renovation if I had to take a guess.

I know this is off-topic, but if anybody knows, forumers will. I'm looking for good, skyscraper 3d puzzles or models, anything thats high quality, with decent size, for my kids to get me for Christmas. I searched on google, brought me to an Ebay, plasticmodelkits.com,, the price is $36usd, 501 pieces, I like the amount of pieces, don't want anything uner 100 or so, I'm looking for something challenging and maybe displaying the World's top 20 in my basement. Anybody know if this brand is good, "good sized"? I want something with a little size as well. If anybody knows a real good direction to go in, please throw some names out there, PM me if you want, just would like to hear some other forumers input on this. Merry Christmas everyone who celebrates and thank you.

^ Right! People under-estimate the massiveness of this building!

Giant buildings always seem to look smaller the further you're away from them. But when you get up close...

I have underestimated the size of this building before viewing these photos.
Nice shots!

True, but then there wouldn't be anywhere for the broadcasting equipment.
