If that pool was at the top,it would be nice.

Does anyone know exactly what is gonna become of the blank wall? Is it gonna remain just as it is currently or does it get a clad of some sort?

^There are renders that show what will be. But no, it will not remain as it is, it will be covered with some sort of metal cladding i assume. I guess aluminium.

So the west wing portion of the building has topped out, the main tower portion is now rising. This should be at around 175m, very short of skyscraper height. The impact on the skyline has just begun.

Could be, since there is now less of formworking and pouring to do.

And every floor will be essentially the same until the very top.

From the vantage point in the above picture, you'll be able to see the slimmest sliver of space between CPS and CPT. It doesn't take a CPU to figure that out.

Yes, absolutely, but I don't necessarily think it's a bad thing

Taken today. Nuts to think that this will be 68% taller than 220 CPS when it's done:

I think it might be, but the part going up now is about the same as the top portion of One57.
