I don't like how the color suddenly changes to brown in the top part of the building.

This entire complex is equivalent to a downtown core of a medium sized city.

6 towers - 230m+
1 tower - 600m+

Are they placing those pieces of the clock and the rest of the tower on just ordinary scaffoldings?

The green clock face is a nice touch. I wonder if it will change colours periodically... Some well placed LED lights can do wonders.

It is true that they are working fast, but there is no way they will complete it in the next 7 days.
