Is this really true, or is it a fantasy?

Somebody wake me up when they start *building* something, please? Digging holes n all is all very well, but this has to be one of the more boring construction sites in the world right now...

well, set your clock to about this time next year because that's when this building is going to starting rising. In the mean time, take a chill pill and enjoy the other beauties that are rising or will be rising.

No, trust me, this isn't one of the more boring construction sites in the world...

As much as I love the Russia Tower, that is currently the most boring construction site... albeit you could just look to the left or right or up and look at other sites, but that site is pretty boring right now. Right now, I wish that site had at least a hole the size of Chicago Spires'...

It's a very rare occurrence when pointing and laughing is not rude, this is one of those rare moments.
