The building is indeed awesome looking.
Any floorplans?

I think i like the green buffer between the city and the river even more!

Hello,
I am doing a report on this construction site for one of my architecture classes and I have some questions :

- what is the program of the second building (the lower one just next to the tower) ? It it a mall ? will there be offices in it ? apartments ? a cinema ?

- what is the GFA (gross floor area) of the second building ?

- approximately how many workers are needed for such a construction ? 1000 ? more ?

I hope that someone here has some answers to my questions.

It looks like they might be starting to take apart the blue crane.

Excuse my ignorance, but why is there that criss-cross pattern every 10 floors? I'm guessing it's to re-inforce(?) the tower, but then I'm thinking from the 125 floors they're losing 12 floors!

Or will that XXXXX be removed once the glass goes on?

Those are mechanical sections, so yes, they are used as extra reinforcement for the structure.

Those sections are called "belt trusses".
Look at Wikipedia for more info on these.

Great pics of the crane being dismantled! I wonder how long there will be just 2 cranes - all the way to the top?

From the sound of this article, it is already obsolete before it is even topped out.
