Toward the sky

One of the latest addition (2006) to the Limerick skyline.

Riverpoint a skyscraper, at the moment with 59.2meter (194.2 feet) high it is the tallest building in the Republic of Ireland.

I guess 59.2 meters is way up there in the clouds. I don't have a clue how long a meter is and I am even dumber when it comes to kilometers. I look at your photograph and it looks good to me. It looks like something an architecture out to make a name for himself would design and make a lot of money on.

There are skyscrapers and then there are skyscrapers.

Taipei 101 is the world's tallest "completed" skyscraper. But Burj Dubai is currently "under construction" and will be the tallest skyscraper in the World, dominating all height-related ranking criteria.

59.2 m is 194 feet. I think there is 13-14 floors, we are far from Taipei, Dubai or NY skyscraper, but you definitely notice it in limerick.
