i believe sometimes in the mid 90's the project has been announced. first plans showed a height of 460m and 94 storeys. they started in 1997 with the foundations but one year later is already was on hold until 2003

Yes, it is one of the largest display screens in the world. The largest one is on the Citigroup Building - the tower next to the Aurora.
