Its amazing how things have changed since Philippe Petit's time (ie Man on Wire) where it was a super underground operation as compared to this hype. Shows what media attention and thus funding to sway private building owners' perception on activities like this is (read money).

On a related note, for us that prefer the line a bit looser, it does give me hope for the growing highline community and the possibility of some awesome urban lines in the distant future for cape town though :) (and acceptance of natural lines in our mountains too!)
