For the first time in a while, there's a little visual progress with the slow-motion finish work...

Here's the mid-tower platform on the south east side yesterday morning (click for full size):

Agreed. Curious as to the reasons.

The second drum from the top.. is completely uncovered!

Though I'm starting to see the first thing that I don't like in this building.. I am not loving how the building looks when the white shutters or curtains of the windows are closed. Don't like that contrast.. but oh wells.. money can't buy taste xDD

That lovely photo is giving us a nice glimpse about how the actual thing is going to look, once everything is completely finished. The mechanical floors really help creating the floating look.
