The lobby, while impressive, again isn't quite as big as you'd expect. Probably because the owners would rather use the space for areas they can lease. From here, you head to the left and down into the basement to start the tour.
Here are a few frames of the safety briefing that was projected onto some vapor. A neat effect. The bottom image, looking like the Recognizer from "Tron", is a gate. If you're figuring I made it a point to walk through the light-vapor gate, you would be correct.
There are two spots in the middle of the bridge that jut out slightly, allowing for great views. Or they would, had there not been massive video displays mounted in them that show you computer-enhanced views of exactly what you’re looking at. There has to be a better way to do both.
This is the opposite side from the last photo. The area directly at the bottom is the massive mall that is the bottom few floors of the Towers. In front of that is a large park that has more fountains. These have a light show at night (more on this in a few slides).
Inside the top left of the tower, which that juts out (is there a name for that?), is a restaurant. I want to call it a tower nubbin, but that's probably not the technical term. Cue drooling Homer: "Mmmmmmh, tower nubbins."
So much construction. Next to it, you can see the big park adjacent to the tower. Even in the incredible heat and humidity, there were lots of people running and exercising in the park at all hours. I guess you get used to it, but wow.
Back on terra firma, here's a closer look at the fountains. Not quite as impressive as the one in front of the Bellagio in Vegas, or the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, but due to some excellent color LEDs, it's still a great show.
