I love this tower how many floors a month is the average??? Seems like this thinner one should rise Rapidly?? Right,, I know 1 Wtc is twice as thick,, so this 1m should really move..

I guess it will rise with a good speed. Maybe 4-6 floors per month seem to be realistic for me

Thanks for all the updates. I've been gone for a week and the site looks completely transformed. Love it.

Hopefully by next summer this will be starting to show on the skyline.

Big thanks for all the updates over the weekend i was expecting the crane to be higher than this and thought we wouldnt see it on the camera but they put it at the perfect height. Has there been confirmation of a second crane or is it just people guessing? They still seem to have the smaller crane for the unloading of the trucks.

Since the crane was only assembled on Saturday those guys on the crane are working on making the craning actually operational. And when that's ready they will have to do some load tests before it can be used.

Indeed, you can see them now testing and walking in and out the cabine.
BTW if the tower rises I think they can do about 5 normal floors per month and the mechanical floors will take a bit longer.

City inspector needs to inspect a crane before it will go in operation plus they still need to finish setting everything up

no. not really... they just testing/setting up right now, then it needs to pass certification/inspection, and then it will be all set.

My guess it will be in working order maybe tomorrow, but I'll shoot for wednesday.

No one has a clue what this will even look like, we do not even have official renders, have no clue what materials will be used, color, etc. I find it quite funny reading so many people crapping on the design with virtually zero information aside from the fact it will be TALL.

Lets just wait and see maybe you will be surprised once it starts going up and we really get to see what it will look like.

They will use nickel cladding, so it will look silvery.

the topping out date of 432 park and world one in mumbai should be pretty close right, with 432 topping out first?
