Ahh you visited the Sky Tower in the Mall.

When will the "bridge" on top be placed?

This would look rather solid in Chicago. If they toned down the white frame to a more "modest" white, it would fit right in.

The completed towers are the Etihad towers, I believe one of the u/c ones is a hotel I don't know about the other. Someone please correct me.

Anyone have an idea as to how far the concrete slabs are from topping-out?

Some inside information:
- L64 slab casting completed, is last full slab, now 3 levels 'penthouse' ongoing.
- Cores will be completed this week, removal of first shutters have been started.
- Preparation of bridge works are in full speed, inspect a lot from now until end of year!! The bridge is 67m long connecting the 2 cores on top. Bridge will be build up by 3 beams that will be strand jacked 342m what is a new record as per my knowledge.
