It looks like they're building the skybridge

WOW!

Look at the progression! It seems like nothing happened after the fire incident. By the way, I wonder if those two antennas should be included on the height of this building (so it should be 480m + antenna height)? Or is it going to be another Sears Tower again?

I remember I saw a render with two towers on top (not cranes). I could not find that render though. Maybe its just a proposal. Well, either way, Its still a a nice building. Too bad, it can't beat the Taipei 101 but it has better design.

In my opinion, these skyscrapers are much more impressive than those in the US.
