yeah right!!

Made a typical flickr mistake. Upload date has of course nothing to do with the actual day the picture was taken.

The only question is will it be taller then Taipei 101 when completed? The spires are a good idea to overtake taipei 101 but they take away the entire effect of the building. What else could be used to outtake 101?

I don't think SWFC care about "who's ***** is bigger", I think SWFC is way better design that 101 and Petronas. just like HKBOC who will think it isn't a landmark because it no longer the tallest building in HK.

i agree, i personally am glad that china is not pursuing the world's tallest. shows me that they dont need the world's tallest building to tell the world they have big dicks.
