The cladding rises about 1 floor/week same as the floorplates, so it gives the impession the cladding isn't catching up.

Wow that has shot up! The towers in the City of London and Canary Wharf may be taller but as they're surrounded by other tall buildings they don't have nearly the impact of that. Looking really good Manchester - if a little isolated.

alright chaps. KITR's render with the cladding complete looks absolutely fantastic. Having seen the beast from Salford Quays and the Lowry two weeks ago, I'll be paying another visit in the New Year. First of many in the North of England I hope (Brunswick Quay, Gallowgate, Inacity Eastgate Tower, Criterion Place and West Point). We could have rather a lot to look at in the coming years.

Considering nobody else seems to want to bother, I'll do an update with the pictures made by those who don't want to bother (hope they don't mind).

The cores are now topped out, and they are dismantling the Dokas.

Yeah, those yellow things on the top of the cores. They were like self climbing moulds. They would lay down the concrete, wait for it to dry, and then climb up it.
