One can tell this building is rising faster by looking at the Earthcam feeds - view 2 now at the stage where they will have to start raising the camera in order to capture the top of the building. View 1's camera must be further away, because it can still get the whole building into the frame.

Finally... After 26 days of waiting. Even though it took alost a month for the core to jump, this is nothing compared to the time last year when the tower was nearly on hold. During that time, there was a 70 day gap between core jumps, nearly 3x longer than the gap between the latest core jump and the previous one.

I can't believe they're serious about the helicopter landing pad. Surely wind would make it too dangerous to use?
