If would be the skyscraper 1,5 or 2 times higher, it can be good, but now is too fat.

And sorry, but that development around the skyscraper is just horrible!

OK, I don't believe in this pic. Either it's an SLR or probably one of those digitally-manipulated images. Either way, it's a fantastic pic. Almost hard to distinguish if it's real or not real.

looks at that chunk of boats, jeez. Half the river is blocked.

Wuxi has the shape to get a great skyline though.

LOVE those buildings. I wish more modern buildings in China incorporated some traditional features into their designs.

And the towers are identified as tubes. hahahaha. what a nice thing to be actually raising.

I never thought they'd actually build this and even less so that they'd build this at that particular location.


The people of Toronto willl be jumping up and down if this were built there, but no, It's raising on some farmland in China.

Long live communism with Chinese characteristics.


LOL I can't help but to laugh.



Although, I hope the developer doesn't run out of money before it is finished. It'll be a huge blow to the confidence of the society and the millions of other farmers who are working towards this exact benchmark. Or at least I hope the state is ready to carry the bill if something economically unfortunate were to happen.

God bless China and all her inhabitants.

In fact.. God bless the world and the universe that it exists in.

The sphere at the top is a very interesting feature. It has potential to form an exciting part of some sort of lighting feature at night. It looks great in the updates too.
