It could be thirty percent ON.

Still don't like this tower. Hideous.

And by the way, page 600! And it's basically completed!

How is that obnoxious? I mean, it's an ugly building, but I would buy it if it was cheap.

Well, it seams to be used and functional, and that's called 'occupied'

I'm on page 1199 already! There are two cranes on the wall in recent pictures, so yes, basically completed but not completely.

CTBUH doesn't consider the crescent an occupied space:

There's still some cladding missing on the back and the crane is still up? Are they ever going to finish this?

you know these almost two windows are taking time longer than the whole building itself

( even if we say they are working on the interior .. it can not take more than this common !! I'd say almost 2 years without any thing done )

So the pedestal for the crescent is open to the public? No idea. That would make a nice photo - hint hint hint.

How come the CTBUH considers this completed when all the skyscraper websites and people don't?

I can explain that: Last year when the CTBUH put out their annual 20 Tallest Completed Buildings for the year, they included this project. They have to start putting the report together a couple of months before it is published at the end of the year, so last year at this time, it looked like it would be completed by the end of the year. I guess no one anticipated that the crane would still be up there. They have kept the 2012 completion date to comply with the report and the posters they also published.

Just goes to show that you can't predict the future.

Perfect example: One Madison Park in NYC which will finally be completed this year even though the superstructure was finished in 2009.
