I always had big hopes for this building, but am now beginning to doubt it will ever happen.

This tower is not tall enough currently. It might stay stuck in this low stage for lots and lots of years, if we are not lucky. It wouldn't be the first tower to do so.

I hope they will build this "thing". It's so kitschy and bad in a way that it's good again:-)

Perhaps there is only ONE worker left..after breakfast he enters the cran...brings some material up...leaves the crane...fixes the material at it's place...than a little bit concrete pumping...and so on.
He's lucky because so he had a safe job for the rest of his life:-)

Perhaps the crane is green because of moss and verdigris
