I hope this clears some stuff up for you guys...
Great entrance you make.
4 days, that's in no time.

I mis that on the top of the building with a spire on top but it isnt.
A box with a top like that would be a big mistake.

It will take a while to get into cycle. I suspect it will be above the 7th floor as the floors are not really "typical" until that point....and don't forget the learning curve.

BTW, I am not sure if you guys heard this from somewhere, but the facade will be primarily white "architectural" 14,000 PSI self-consolidating concrete with windows installed between the beam and column grid.

Thanks for all the info Builder.

Also, a tower this simple will seemingly come down to the quality of materials used. Have you seen the concrete which will be used for the facade, or can you comment on the concrete further at all?

Your insights are much appreciated, and welcome to SSC!

I agree. It's probably not your job Builder37, but we would really like to see some close up renders.
I have all confifence it will look great.

I don't like the sound of the exterior's details.. It'll be striking in terms of height, but I think that's about it.

That makes perfect sense...it will then be above the retail building...which looks like the retail spaces will extend into the north side of the tower...we did hear something about this earlier...thanks for the enlightenment...we should seem soon right?...as the south facade starts to rise

Is concrete going to be painted or covered in any way? That is certainly one of the issues that we have speculated a lot here about. Would be nice to know that from first hand.

People here are misled by the term 'concrete'

This is what people think of 'concrete:'



This is actual concrete cladding:


It will look more like that, but even better, since this is meant to be housing for the ultra rich. It won't look like some worn out commieblock.

White architectural concrete... oooo pretty . Yeah I imagine they would be doing due diligence in making sure the building is top notch for their clientele.
