Maybe icantthinkoganame prefers circle hole of old design, or hates presence of all skyscrapers all together.

yep, Jin Mao is 421m to the spire, the base of the Hole ( so the 1st OB-Deck is at ~440m )

What is that tower to the right of the Oriental Pearl Tower? It resembles the Chrysler Building.

there is still a lot of work to do on the cladding
but other than that, it looks beautiful!

i actually originally preferred the circle design
but now that i actually see the trapezoid, i like it better

BTW those horizontal things sticking out every floors by cladding, what are they?

Maybe to make life easier for people like Alain Roberts.

ummm.....guess you missed the reason the hole was nixed. circle=japanese flag.

Why are the frames of the cladding two different colors? Are they painting them or cleaning them?
