The glass cladding is top-notch - highly reflective and beautiful

Great looking design as well!

The core is on the 62nd floor but they have yet to change the tag on top.

Just check the other tags: there is 58, 59 and there are 2 levels with no tag and then is the final one, where they are still working, so it is the 62nd indeed.

On the following picture, you can compare the current height with the 269 meters tall, 21st Century Tower in front:

While the core is on the 62th floor, there is a G and a M not included on that count, so in total the core is up 64 levels.

BTW today the central core has climbed one more floor, so we are on the 63rd + G + M = 65th level.

Just 7 more to go and by the first week of June it will be topped up.

The tower (central core) has reached the 64th floor, which is a 2 floors more then just a week ago. With this speed, the remaining 6 floors will be compleated in just three weeks.

It is becoming more and more difficult to take a picture of this tower, due to the height.

The glass facade in the front and rear suide of the tower:

PS. Tower is G + M + X, so now it is actually 66 levels above the ground.

Lol..the people on floors 1-30 are not going to have much of a view if their rooms are on the side of the hotel.

actually there are towers which are even closer together on SZR, but this one has a veeeery small floorplate so it is not that bad in fact.

IS this towers facade going to be like the one in the rendering, since they are using a lot of blue glass and in the rendering there isnt so much blue glass on the bottom, or I could be wrong?

the facade is more of a silver colour, it all depends on the lightning and the sun.
