Try the architects website: http://www.naa-arch.com/project_detail.php?cat_id=0

There are a couple of different angles. Don't know if that's what you're looking for.

Thanks for the update. 3 floors in 5 weeks is pretty impressive, especially with the weather we've had.

It doesn't really as the images are pretty small, and I think they've been posted before anyway, but thanx very much all the same.

concrete vs. steel crews.

Yes, 7 floors from february 13th to march 4th = 20 days = three floors every 3 days, pretty fast!
do they work on weekends?
The steel tower seems to rise pretty fast also, but I can't figure it out how many more floors it has. By now it has more than 20.
