And why shouldn't there be one?

JK, probably a .jpg file was overwritten at that file server.

She is pretty. Cute in that way that makes you want to do unseemly things with her..........all night long!

Now I'm going to go save those to my hard disk before they are gone.

Of course this site looks frustrating right now... but still one can see a promise for better days. For example: wasn't there a water filled hole near Jin Mao Tower for years? Now the ruling SWFC has become reality there - even taller than planned in the 1990's!

I believe the SWFC was started in the mid 90's, up until the foundations were done, and was then put on hold until 2003. Where a bigger tower than planned was built.

Not that I'm aware of. Even if someone did, I don't think it would help much. What's most important now is that the economy gets better, allowing for them to proceed with the project and get the appropriate loans and financing. (Sorry for the off-topic posts. I was just curious if they were there for a reason. I didn't mean to get the entire thread off topic)

Economy is getting better? by what standards? what numbers?
At the very least some sort of getting better should come at the July 2009 - that is if Obama will make some really big and right decisions on the economy and it will work. So, if this tower should start rising again - it should be on pure faith that once they will end it - people will start buying again and they will have jobs to pay for it. After all - it will take about 1,5 years to finish it.

I didn't say the economy WAS getting better. I said it NEEDS to get better.

Ok, really... they need a alternative plan.
A smaller spire (~300-400m) or another building for this hole.
