Is impossible to see photos from that restaurant in couple of days? Anyone from here (SSC) will snap photos from that restaurant?

Hi all.

Flickr - reinholdbehringer - 11 01 07 - taken from the OD walkway



Kinda looks like someone is having a very expensive wedding ?

IIRC the (relatively) small building on the office podium is a restaurant with outdoor tables as are set up here ? Like the 6 level addition to 'the offices' (prev. known as the office annex) and a host of other revisions, this building was a fairly late addition so I have no concrete info.

Perhaps, like At.mosphere on level 122 this is just opening also.
Can anyone confirm it is a restaurant ?


Ray.

Going by the colour scheme of the table settings, this is an Armani function.

Will the At.Atmosphere be part of Armani?

China to get its own Burj Khalifa

We don't know yet whether it will be taller/more original than Dubaï's but what we already know is that it will be a 7 star Palace.

This collosal project (1.3 billion $) will draw its inspiration from Burj Khalifa as China & Saudi Arabia will collaborate. It appears to be located in Mentougou.

Now the guy that posted that on his youtube page has nothing to do with the ownership. By the end of the week, he will have his youtube account and all videos deleted...

The "sitting on top" video host is up without permission, its actually from Brett Smrt, the younger stunt guy.

Fury found it, but it was down in a matter of hours, due to MI4 crew being a little annoyed.




Seeing as we are bumping old stuff

Isn't Mentougou some hindered areas of Beijing??
Why would such a luxurious project be build in a rural area. This really upsets me nowdays when every piece of land is expected to be used as luxury real estate. Media tries to convince us that this is a positive building boom, indeed, it's stupidity.

Hi OTR.
Thanks for the reply.

I'm pretty sure I heard the building on the office podium is a restaurant that will have tables inside and tables that can be set outside as in the shot above.
Still looking for confirmation on that.

The landscaping turned out great and even better at night.

A first attempt of making a time lapse, shot from the Rooftop Bar at Four Point Sheraton. Actually, Burj Khalifa was glittering like crazy and radiating swirling beams like a light house. However, this is not visible due to the wide angle lens. Furthermore, the video is a bit too dark. Well, each time you learn something new, I guess...



Watch in HD on Youtube!
