It has only started to really rise and it's already looking spectacular due to the shape of the floor plates. Impressive!

Good to see an early start on the cladding too! Such a great building.

Holy Shit! I had completely forgotten about this building amidst the hype of the Trump, Spire and Waterview,
This one is going to be spectacular!

Because of the waves in the concrete, it looks like the glas is bent too. Nice optical illusion.

I think it's a shame they didn't push their own concept further, and gave the actual tower a 'floating/ondulating' shape, instead of sticking curves onto a box.

Still can't wait for the final result though, but I think they missed a golden opportunity to come up with something truly stunning there...

Does anyone know whether they intend to paint the concrete exposed balconies - or what color? I can't imagine it would be simply exposed concrete.

From the looks of it, even better than the renderings.

but it would have taken so much time during the construction cuz they'd need different shaped glasses for facade for every single curve on the building. also it may cost too much. exceeding the budget is not something that people want
