The facade is almost mirror like, it's very reflective. The building looks like it is moving up very rapidly, how much longer until it tops out?

This building is G + M + 70, so they need to build two more floors and then the roof feature and the spire.

The core is rising by 2 floors per week so next Sunday they will be doing the last floor of the core. Of course, having to build the floors and then the roof + spire, it will take months to complete it.

It looks awesome, but to have something that reflective, just like a 1000 foot mirror on a busy ass road as this in a country thats all sun, seems a bit impractical. You'll need sunglasses and suntan lotion just to enjoy looking at it

The 21st Century's top of the spire is still higher.

To anser the above two questions:

1. Yes, someone is walking on the railing.
2. Yes, he's wearing a safety rope.

Check both him (on top) and his shadow (on the bottom):

Is it me, or are they using the same kind of construction technique as NYC's WTC's?
