Any pics of Union Square phase 7? There hasn't been an update in ages. I know it's rising slowly but how much progress has been made in the past few weeks?

Like I said, it looks about the same as the last pictures people posted. But for those of you who really need a picture, I took one last week:

Is the observation deck on the top floor or underneath the hotel? Hopefully it will be the highest for a specific time

Those Sorrento towers look so high in the sky that it's hard to imagine that this little sub of a building will be almost twice as high in the future.
