On Thursday they were doing the electricity load test on the tower, with all the lights inside turned on. I always love seeing these, is once in lifetime chance for the specific tower.

There's already a McDonald's outlet at the facing corner on the adjacent tower on the left, just 20 meters away.

Sounds like NY. At least they didn't make two McDonald's in the same building in case you miss the first one.

The other one is at the corner of Crowne Plaza and it has been there since forever. But you know where what you said happened, in MOE. There's a McD at each of the Food Courts in the mall.

Actually that was the first thing that popped in my head when I saw the picture in addition to the other McDonald's adjacent to it. SZR would soon be known as MDR.

It is actually, the electricity load test is the final check before the completion certificate is awarded.


... but then why 4 years seams such a long period of time for building a supertall tower? Are they popping up daily elsewhere in just a couple of years or something?

New York actually doesn't have that many mc donald's restaurants downtown. Places like London and Berlin have way more I think.

There is something like 4 McDonald's every square mile in Manhattan or something ridiculous like that. And I remember it very well, I saw many over there.

Judging from what I saw there earlier in the year I think there's more than that.
