Sorry for the derailment.

I too am astounded at how fast this thing is rising. Those earlier night time renders blew my mind, and to think how soon that'll be a reality. This tower does have a menacing, evil empire look to it... and I love that about it.

I'm not the biggest fan of the evil empire thing, but I still like the design (especially at day;the night thing creeps me out just a little).

I wonder if it will be possible to see this Tower on a clear day from HK Island.

Edit: I checked it now on Google earth. There is no mountain over 500m between the highest Point of HK Island and the tower.
The distance is just 30km

there are two scales
kilo - mega - giga
extended - full - super - ultra

This is perfect for me:

from gaoloumi:
400 + are sticky

Important buildings are U/C. Is not so much 400+ U/C even in China.
Forum don't need from new thread for couple of buildings.

If so it will be possible.

Just for reference look at this photo: http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2835/9...94c96e58_o.jpg

I took it from Danan Mountain. Can you see the communications tower on the upper left of the picture? It's 30km away from where the photo is taken (i.e. very similar to distance from HK Island to Ping An). It's very clearly visible. And it wasn't even a very clear day.

All we need now is some good spots in HK Island from where such view would be possible.

Gaoloumi in English? That sounds pretty cool, where did you find it please? Would anyone tell me please, where can I find some alternative of DN archives (http://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=908) on gaoloumi.com? Thank you

My browser is google chrome. It translate! Not perfect, but nice.
I posted with English, but personally use other language.

My browser is Opera. It fails in translating so I don´t use this function, but Chrome translates fine. Thank you
