Even more impressive than when it topped out

Pouring of the lift shafts almost done too , and good progress on the podium.

Because of projects like this makes me feel proud to be a fan of great architecture and skyscrapers not to mention a member of this site. The SWFC looks just beautiful now that the holes cleared.

It could be, but it could also be one of the red warning lights but since it's not precisely in the middle I think it's indeed a person.

Only if he stays right on the edge, here you could only see the upper body and Chinese people are small. I have to see more close ups.

It's the Aliens!!!!!

They found out that there's a building so advance on Earth that they have to go there and investigate it! Now, they are wondering and confuse why its not rectangular because their pics are all in circle.




Now, I can't wait for the glass facade to cover that observatory!
