I am so excited! Finally they are assembling it! My happiness cannot be expressed in words. I cannot wait to see how this whole complex will look like in two years!!!

They don't have financing for phase II, I would guess.

Just speculating here but:

It looks like there's a second outer ring layer for every level of Vessel that has yet to be added to the piece ... and they may have a lot of reinforcement and electrical work that needs to be done to the existing "inner ring" before they go higher again. Setting up for that outer ring appears to take a long time.

If you look at some of the more straight overhead shots of the existing ring, there are several staircases that radiate straight out from the center that go nowhere right now ... so there are parts of the landing for those staircases that need to be added, that would also include more staircases around the outer edge that connect to the upper levels.



There's also a lot of work being done all around Vessel that they may want to get done first before Vessel rises and interferes with the work below it ...

hmmm...so do we know what the material is? My guess was it'd be copper - and it sure looks like it.

It's copper color, but copper itself would be way too expensive to maintain and keep this shiny. It's probably some colored aluminum-ish kind of material.
