lol,, yeah it is slow,, but the company didn't start the project with the tower, they wanted to finish the mall and carpark first...

this is only the beginning of the tower, which is the most important part and they are taking their time with it :P construction will be much faster in the future, just like arraya tower.

Its moving very nice!!!

Already it is a very difficult construction to pour in concrete (the difficult shape of the building) the progress is really fast. Its not a ordinary boxy building its mutch more then that!

By the way very good work of the forummers that taking pictures of the site!
