could those that keep saying 'commie block' please look at the renders on the first page.
This building is 'under construction' Exposed frames aren't pretty, thats why they eventually clad them, oh and also to stop the wind blowing through and people falling out of them

as said earlier the width of this is incredible. I like it, it will enhance the skyline with its width more than anything else

Guys, if you really want to call it commieblock, please don't forget to add that it's the tallest and most beautiful commieblock ever built.

Are the elevator shafts on the sides of the structure? Will there be any elevator shafts anywhere else?

mbuildings has made close to 1000 posts in just 4 weeks (!) saying nothing much more than "nice pics", "just stunning", "stunning project" and "very nice project".

Is this a copy and paste record?

1. Commieblock -Usually tall concrete building

First of all this building has a layer over the concrete, but more importantly, a commie block is a (set of) mass produced building(s) (often delivered in parts and possible to reassemble and ship to yet other locations). This is not a commie block by any means, what an insult to this beautiful building .

The construction of the Indes is going well, but I think that the placing of the cladding is very slow. I don't see many change in that part.

This picture is an excellent example of a good angle to get a real understanding on how unique this building's architecture really is.

There are less then 26 floors left. You are ignoring the G, M. Also those 28A, 29A & 30A double height mechanical floors most probably are included on that 86 figure as well.
