For example:



But that doesn't matter, becouse you don't know what is going on inside. Best way to find it out is ask Imre (or anybody else) if the cranes are moving, and if there are any workers on the side, rather than hastily change the title.

Doesn't the board usually require a source before the status of a tower is changed? Where is the source for The Index being on hold?

The sources are pictures.

In fact patrykus is right, there is some progress which I didn't notice. I will change it back.
