If this were a supertall I'm sure people would appreciate it a lot more. It's such a understated and classy building.

^ just 7m short of 305m. Would have been great. It's funny how this skyscraper has really grown on me.

Cranes will have to complete work installing the communications ring and dismantling the temporary platforms used to construct the spire. The hoist, I believe, is used to bring the crane parts back down to the ground. Expect the hoist to be up for a while.
