Quite impressive. 6 levels for the climbing form system. I wonder why.

Indeed plus I don't think it is okay to use pics with people in them to update projects and add to that no source is ever posted!!!!

here is a reminder to the posting rules:

We have seen these kind of posts from Naki multiple times and it is obvious he/she are friend with that person. Compared to the other shitty posts on this thread, I'd rather have Naki's friend selfies over new usernames questioning this project.

I'd rather see a link to the facebook account he/she is taking them from! I don't care if she/he is friends with anyone and both ways a link MUST be accompanying the picture, unless she/he clarifies the matter.

Seems odd they're building this is what appears to be the middle of nowhere. Hopefully by the time it's done, the rest of the area will have something in it.

Pace is still glacial on this tower. When is the most up-to-date construction schedule estimating topping out? Certainly does not look like it will happen this year.
