I am hoping this will not be the hardest part of the construction. I guess they will put some temporary support to prevent it from collapse.

Its amazing how they keep these buildings from falling, the central core must be extremely tough.

At least CCTV will eventually be connected. These things scare me more in their own way. Even scarier, both are in areas of moderate to high earthquake risk.

Those buildings always worry me a bit as well Middle Island

I guess the central supports must be incredibly strong.

Long overdue visibility arrives!

A few new shots from this morning:

Standard overview shot:

Detail of horizontal elements protruding further and further, TVCC in left of the frame:

flickr


Detail of the complex 'skin' that envelops TVCC, you can spot at least two workers for scale:

Overview shot of CCTV from the east, scaling up behind very recently demolished buildings:

A view from the south towards the top part of the eastern facade of TVCC, the skin is growing nicely, and you can seen the random pattern of the hotel rooms protruding in the design:

Ok ok, just one more for some entertainment: an early morning shot of construction activities within the skin of the west side of the TVCC development:

As per usual, many more shots here: CCTV Building Development Construction

Enjoy!

Interesting new angle

Was able to talk myself into a random person's apartment just now, and took a few shots--

Overview panorama shot (stitched up about 8 photos):

The Service Building (which is MASSIVE!):

I took many many more photos, but I'm about to go out and have a beer (thus no time to post them here)-- please have a look at the usual location if you want to see them: CCTV Building Development Construction.

Enjoy!
