adriansmithfan, if your gonna add something make sure you scale the current photo at 450m. should be easy to workout to 808m spire ect.

No offense but this thing is borne of ridiculous ambition. The thing dwarfs everything else!

The problem with the observation deck is that it's only a few meters above the current highest, such as the Sears Tower or CN Tower observation decks. Couldn't they relocate it up a hundred meters or so?
