Do you guys like it?
I am delighted that it will not be green like its 2 neighbours.

It is a little hard to judge it based on the pics so far, I am sure it will look real stunning when the sun shines on it. And I hope it will be nicely lit up at night like in the renderings

no.

it will be as tall (one of the two towers) as the blue one just next to it (approx 245m). the three tallest ones you can see, are all the same hight, and will stay tallest unless the gov changes the hight limit (currently approx 280.2 meters).

Great update! The glass appears to have more of a blue tint to it, which is refreshing. I was worried about too much green glass in one area.

The Sail is rather 2-faced: extremely wide from one angle, and FLAT from the side ;-)

This took forever to start, now it's tall-ish and being clad. Great!

Thanks for the updates.

The piling works and digging out the base took about 1 year (which was faster than expected because the 1 Raffles Quay development took about 1.5years to start rising).

One reason could be the reclaimed land that these new projects sit on, I suppose having carparks above-ground help speed up the rising process though
