wow, thx!
Very colorful mix, yellow, red and purple.
I am guessing the "black box" that is currently right on top of the core is some kind of jump-climb form (with hydralic jack) for concrete molding. You can see the back side (inner plate) currently. This design would be more efficient than the one they used for all the core floors below, where they put the plates in place manually.
After the whole thing is set up, i think it will look like the one that 2ifc had, but it is purple instead of brown. Let's see if my prediction is right.


US6 is blue (again??!!!?) No more blue new buildings in hk...hehe.

Wow. Multiple phases going up at the same time.. quite incredible if you ask me... and these are substantial towers. Must require many many construction workers.

Haha.. ICC is highlighted by purple! Even the cranes are multicoloured!

One obvious thing that I can see is that they are preparing to raise the height of the cranes. And the red one.

vincent, I reckon you're right. That black box is the "mould" which is called "formwork" in civil engineering language.

Great Endophins! Superb update! And my eyes were good, they are building up a big crane in the tower now, so finally we can expect significant rising soon!
