Great pics caw. You would'nt see me pulling that cladding in from that height. I love skyscrapers, but the strange thing is i'm shit scared of heights.

I'm pretty sure they'll be harnessed, lol..

Fantastic pics, loads of cladding to marvel at now, she just keeps on growing, even though we know the height, its still weird wondering how many more she can go up in a way..it looks so clean, fresh and new..superb.

Imagine the view from Hulme High St when its finished on a sunny day like today, ahhhhhhhhh just warms the cockles, the kids that grow up round there are gonna love this tower they have arguabley the best view from outside town IMO, the photo opportunities from that street and all over Hulme are gonna be immense, the view from Hulme Park is just as spectacular, just wait til its finished.

The houses look alright but look at the scum who roam through it from neighbouring areas. Probably one of the dodgiest areas of manc at night. Actually saw the police pull up in a van, run in a house and arrest some guy while I walked down Alexandra Road.

Some photos from today

From Oldfield Road

Down D'gate

Funny how perspective proportions works isn't it? Looking onto the narrow end it looks huge. Looking onto the rump it doesn't.

Walked right towards it on Sunday along Deansgate and it didn't look as impressive as when I was at the bottom of Liverpool Street thin side on.

its got a long way to go yet, went all round it yesterday, we needn't worry I don't think. In Caws last pic, from top of scaffold (NOT DOKA) theres about the same height again still to be built, its not looking taller coz they are just building the shafts but slowly its gonna start to get really high. yippeeeee

they are bound to have that Hilton Manchester sign, actually i'd say on caws pic that scaffold is about the height of that sign or a couple of floors above not many, so still quite a bit to go, its hard to tell even though the dokas higher coz they haven't built the floors yet.

I need to get down to town with my camera sometime again soon, I'm just too fat and lazy though, even if it is just 10 minutes on the bus *sigh* it's looking great, though, fabulous pictures once again caw I was sat in the car with my Nana and Grandad today, driving through town and pointing out all the new developments like Beetham and explaining to them what was happening and what was going up, sad but true- I felt quite a well of pride too, *gulp*

[Salutes!]

Just a few more months to top out?

those last couple of pics are great caw, especially the first one, really looks a biggy from there, imagine when its at full height, hope your right about it topping out by the end of this year, you realise we will have to shoot you if it doesn't.
