Default Very cool pic

I've heard about this building, but never really understood how big it was going to be.

Is it safe to build that high? To me it seems like a gust of wind can tip that building over.

apparently it is. I would imagine that before spending millions to build it they make sure that it doesn't fall down when it gets windy.

Damn, at that height they probably have to take the rotation of the earth into account lol. That is pretty sweet, wonder what it is. Looks like the agency building from Crackdown.
