They jumped on the 37th floor yesterday so it took them 10 days to complete the 36th.

That's to bad for the tower. I hope that the construction gets faster that it is right now.

I was wondering why construction is going so slow? The floors that they are building now doesnt look very complicated to me. Or is there any trick inside

10 days for building one floor isn't really slow for such a massive concrete structure, however the construction here has seen faster times in the past.

Actually Foster just did the concept design, while Multiplex employed Wood Bagot to turn the concept into reality.

It's been a while since I last checked on this and it's good to see that it has progressed so well.

I'm still not getting an overall feeling for this one. I still can't envision what it will end up looking like, despite renders & construction pic updates.

To me it looks exactly as in the renders, just that the tiles over the concrete are not white but a much darker colour.
