"Whats the floor/week ratio at the moment?"

They said it would rise at 2floors/week after a while, dont remember when but i guess its in that region now. Maybe 1.5 - 2 floors/week.

they said they want to reach 3 Floors a week actually.
this will be once they reach upper levels for sure.

and actually the tower has not risen that much, the core is just far ahead now, very impressive. should be level 28 now.
thanks altin.

where did you take that first photo from?
Falcon car park?

Flo: The pic on the Post 114, pics 1 and 2 on Post 115 and pic 1 on Post 117, were taken from the 19th floor of FALCON Tower's parking lot, while the other 5 pictures were taken from the usual spot I use, next to Mazaya Center.

they focus on the core and floorplates
core has risen significantly within 1 week, about 3 floors

same goes for floor plates, amazing speed

At least that was the highest number on the elevator. I hope they didn't start skipping floors on car parks also.

The pictures posted by AltinD show us that the 16th, the 17th and the 18th floors are higher than the normal floors. Assuming the drawing in post#1 is correct, it seems obvious that these three floors are the ones with the silver glazing (instead of the transperent/white normal ones) on the drawing. This would mean that the first setback will occur on one of the outermost petal or wing after the 25th floor. These outermost petals (the ones with the rounded columns) are still on the 3rd floor at the moment, so I guess it will take some time for us to see the first setback.

Does this make any sense?

Thanks for taking the time!

I think the worker is not on the edge of the wall, but deeper in the room as that floor has been poured.
I believe AltinD captured it just as the worker was walking by the openning.

The one circled on top is more to scale as he is on the edge of the scaffolding.

yepp and i'd also say the floor to floor height should be more than 3.8m, while the floor to ceiling could be about 3.8m indeed.
