That's the one!

The constructors should make some offers for base jumpers, who can't wait..

Imre, gerald, 234sale - you should follow the man from the video at next photos!

I hope whoever that is made an effort to take some decent photos and video, because if not, that's the most tragic waste of an opportunity I've ever witnessed.

Therefore you should try to get there tomorrow . You see what they are wearing, ... even how they look alike.

That guy has a video camera, so why can't we see the inside of the tower? Do you think this is an authorized video?

It looks like concrete, but i would rather now the purpose of these cubes! Did they decide to add some kind of mass damper after all?


The video of top is simply awesome, i would like to see a vid of someone performing a basejump from the top of the spire.

Great to see it, when he aims right down with the camera it looks almost like he's just on a tube, not on a building. And you can see names written on the metal with black felt pen. So more have been up there, without making any footage! Or we haven't noticed it but that's near to impossible
