Thank you steph35, one of the best update of these towers
T1 looks so high now, and the top looks good, can't wait to see the "cap".
Granite is just.... So sexy cladding, so powerfull, can't wait to see

Very classy buildings... Cladding does not look cheap at all, simple yet stunning architecture.

Some awesome photos, thanks for posting them guys, it is much appreciated.
I love the style of this architecture, it's simple somewhat, but stunning.

I love the buildings and such but damn I wish that plaza had some more color/life to it. I never seem to see any banners or flowers on it. Just seems so barren.

Not yet, still some works left to have the building topped out, I guess it'll be a metalic structure up there.

Yep, T1 should be 20 to 25m higher than it is now when they will install its metallic "crown"!
