I like the entrace of The INDEX. And it's great that they're placing the cladding.

I don't understand why everyone's so gung-ho about this one. It looks like a box to me. It's really tall, but not very interesting. In the first render on the first page, it looks like the roof is slanted, but in all of the other renders, the roof looks flat. I think with a slanted roof, it'd be a lot more interesting, but I take it that it's not slanted.

no, its definatley not on hold. They are cladding it, and there are like 50 workers on the massive mechanical level. I think it must be pretty complicated. But there doing stuff, its always active. I will post pictures when there is some more progress

I think the delay is becouse of the major structural change that is going to occur.

Look at the renders on the first page of this thread. The shape is changing, especially in the outer wings it is a dramatic change.

Actually there's progress (refer: post 430 and 432), unless you're talking about construction height.

yer, they are definatley doing something... but with that formwork i cant see anything, just the shadow of like 50 workers and sooo much rebar going up it uncomprehendable. But what... just WHAT are they doing? is it a gimmick to attract attention "whats going on?" for the building? glass is being clad thick and fast.
