It's amazing the distances you can see something the size of BD from so far away, and to think it's man-made it's mind blowing!

Oh. My. God.

What are they planning to do with that structure? It's almost 2.7km to the top! @[email protected]

It would take a long time to go all the way up there...

That's the money shot - great angle.
The glass is looking stunning, cannot wait until the rest is clean.

I had to wiki "Abra" - Just incredible, I never knew they were planning to have boats on the lake!
I noticed that only Downtown residents and their guests will be able to use them... lock your front door Old Town Resident.
