Fabulous. During construction there are so many cool little details that can be captured on the camera.

can i ask a silly question? how come nina tower is FULL height and there is NO sign of clading? did they order it? truck get lost?
in Australia the cladding climbs upjust slower then the floor plates. this wil atake ages to complete.
btw, great pix

They did take a long time with the cladding and I have no idea why, but it's almost completely covered in glass now (check a few pages back for the most recent pictures).

@CULWULLA
i know what u mean, i also often see that in Australia or the US the cladding starts much earlier...
on of the Chicago Eastlake projects they still start the cladding though the tower has only 10 (of around 65) floors yet.

and on the other side in Bangkok there is a whole building's concrete finished but no windows at all.
Then came the asia crisis...and now it stands there like this(below) for long...
(and it's not the only one)

But i have no clue why some start cladding earlier and some wait till topout
maybe we should ask a construction worker or architect

I think it's just a pecularity for this building. 2 IFC's cladding was rising very quickly along with the tower. The bottom floors were already open and the showroom was available before the top parts were completed.

SanMiguel, can you give me more details about the heli tour? like pricing, operator etc. Can you fly at nite? or day only?
I know you know some people that work there, you may get some special treatment.
btw, can a tourist w/o connection request to have the door removed just like you did?
