Last week I had the opportunity to return to China for a very special milestone - the topping out of the Shanghai Tower. It seems like yesterday, but in fact it was five years ago, that we won the design competition for the tower. Besting Foster & Partners, KPF, and a host of other world-class firms for the honor of constructing China's largest, and the world's second tallest building, gave us our first opportunity to build in the super-tall realm. I knew then how important it would be to call upon our best talent from China and around the world to bring the project to fruition.
