^ i am quite surprised to see the speed to this tower, i mean it is incredible and can't believe how fast it is. the core was only at level 4th when i checked this thread just a couple of days ago but it's now at level 8th already, the pinnacle will not be able to beat this speed though thanks for the updates btw

Its construction is incredibly fast indeed...

I'm happy to see that 20FS has grown on many people, better late than never. I've always been fond of it & those new awesome renderings only show how unique this highrise is gonna be.

However, I don't get the "The building with more up top" phrase, I know there's a play on words but I cannot translate it with accuracy in french...

As you can see from renders, the building will be wider the higher you go, so it will have 'more on top'.

You're welcome, I really love this tower and I'm really excited to see it rising so fast.
I'm planning to head down to London in the next couple of weeks so I can see it for myself.

A direct translation would probably be something like "le bâtiment avec plus au sommet" - or as a proper translation, "le bâtiment qui est plus grande au sommet". Basically, as Porto said, the top of the building is wider so there's more space up there.

I love this tower, always have. It's a real break from the traditional tall building.

The speed of it rising is amazing, considering it has a massive core it's shooting up, i hope the pinnacle rises quick too, but these guys are putting the pinnacle crew to shame!!!

Before each manicure, I used essie nail polish cheap’s base coat. I noticed that it dried quickly which was great, but as it was a base coat I can’t honestly say that I noticed too much else about it.

Oh no, that image by scalatrava89 has made me more negative about this towers design. Its too tall for the immediate buildings and too bulky and far out from the city cluster to fit in with the buildings there. I also think it would block the superb view of the city from the monument which is a great viewing platform. Not good for me, i hope it will grow on me.

Had to be demolished to make way for this one!
Interesting demolition, the previous building was a 'top down' construction.
