The second last of Imre's thumbnails shows a more metallic-coloured cladding being applied to the narrow side of the tower.
The bottom section of this cladding seems to have a rippled effect.

the concrete look make the two sides of it look like two extremely oversized columns holding the floors up. Makes it looks dauntingly solid; almost intimidating...

It might be around that height but not exactly.

If you are arriving to this conclusion becouse the 100 meter mark was on the 22nd floor and the 44th is double that so the height might be double as well, then you are totally wrong.

First there are some 4 other floors that are not considered: G, 28A, 29A and 30A and then of course the residential floors (31 and up) have a lower floor-ceeling height then the office floors below.

LOL


In the end the conclusion is:

Its not too wrong to assume 44th story being the double of 22 storey (which have the 100m mark) equal to 200m lolx

Today morning the formwork was up on the 45th floor. They completed the 44th in just 6 working days and this the speed they should keep.
