Good progress, this will look much better coming from the bridge than those boring flats.

I can count 36 floors, so it is nearly topped out (5 to go?). One would already expect to see cladding by now.

What is going to be the official height of this tower? I've seen two different info. Skyscrapercity says 421 ft and on another site it says 450 ft.

And skyscrapercity is much more reliable about heights than for example skyscraperpage ( especially when it comes to lower buildings ) But that is my opinion.
