Always wondered this, just like in some locations in China where the construction site is surrounded by undeveloped grass/dirt lots. How did the real estate market and financing of a city go from no/few highrises to supporting a monster??

It looks so lonely out on its pier. I think this would look great in a city like San Francisco.
