I pretty much agree. Allot of cities around the world have more modern and impressive skylines. Couple U.S. cities i've been to that are pretty cool at night are Honolulu. Some pretty modern and colorful buildings there. San Diego also comes to mind. I think if Miami goes ahead with some of his supertall projects, you probably could add them too.

I saw that special couple days ago. You could tell it was about a month or so old. The hole at the top of the building wasn't started yet. That show was a little misleading. The host said this was now the tallest building in the world. The Burj Dubai i believe is the tallest. Couple months back in made all the news that it just passed the height of the Taiwan tower. So unless they are building the floors faster, it will have to settle for number 2. Plus the Dubai tower is going to pass it in any case.

Some structures are built on top of the bridge... I guess that's the skybridge bracing?

With a smaller crane, which they'll then take down in parts in service elevators.

For a builder, this must be one of the coolest work places in the world.
