Unbelievable

I mean, in this midst of global recession and economic & financial problems and uncertainty everywhere, these individuals will fight it all out to build and build more of these "WORLD'S TALLEST STRUCTURES"

Very crazy

P.S.
Maybe in the next century onwards, we should make structures that break through the earth's atmosphere and already reach outer space

Like those futuristic space elevator concepts :P
Wow, where have you been the past few years?

Hi all.

Great shots Dennis, OTR, and Imre.

Some nice shots of Podium Zone A - the side facing 120 degrees that the crane is on. Can't see the top platform there unless it is under the blue tarp. They gotta be close to putting it up on top of the pinnacle. Then we can get to some jacking - should be good.

Anyone else notice what appears to be 3 holes up near the top of the pinnacle ? They must be something else as there is no holes in the plans. But what .... ?

Hey!

Wow, impressive pics, thanks Imre & OTR. As my vacation began today, a little less pics by me coming two weeks. Will try to make and upload some regularly, hope my girlfriend don't mind

Fury: are these holes for connecting the cables (temporary) or maybe for the aircraft beacons? I don't know what else it could be..

Dennis, This was not in the deal, leave refused

I am also travelling to the other side of the world so no pics from myself for a week.

Fury, I think ports will be for illumination lights as the spire will most definetly be lit up.
