Thanks Pingyao, Skydragon, Vellu, Patrick!

That building is about 825 feet. However, it is on higher ground than the immediate surrounding area. In the pic below, you can see that the ground is about 50 feet higher from where you would be standing. There are also 2 streets that go under this complex.

I'm using SU 8. I don't seem to have any problems. I actually have my dimensions measured in feet. If I need to zoom closer, I'll widen the field of view. Incidentally,the file is currently 13.5 megs.

Is it the building with the disheveled looking floor plates? I imagine it to be a residential building on the "other" side of the river.

I'm also about to put together a post that features some street scenes.

For now, here is a skyline update.
