Yeah, the balcony views must be superb. We can see one on Imre's pic:

So if you want to swim, you better go elsewhere - the podium has bigger pools, I think. These pools here are more like "giant bath tubs" and of course can't be some meters deep. Taking a bath, you aren't too exposed, as they are placed towards the inside, and there's more balcony area to the left and right. But still a very nice appartment feature. Btw. the jutting balcony floors' heights seem to increase from apex to the base.

Oh wow I didn't know that! Talk about luxurious! I'm sure the view is absolutely outstanding! And I suppose from up there you wouldn't have to see the awkward balconies

but without transparent floor, so a bit more vertigo-proof than Grand Canyon.
Back to the top: seems like spire lantern is gleaming white at night.

two beacons, one white and one red. the white one is pretty strong and directional away from the tallest block. so no surprise the red doesn't show on the pic.

I saw last night that some edged on those triangles on top are going to be lit up. white light bars, and quite wide too. one was plugged in for testing.

will try to post a photo soon if they continue the tests.

with that light this crown is going to look totally awesome!!

I like the spire work a lot... but the pentominium to the left looks sad.

The spire is the best and only good part of this tower. The 3-different sections just don't do it for me.

The spire looks great, but it must have been scary for the workers having to put up so many levels of Scaffolding at that height.

Looks like dumpster!


... and it is (bottom right). In all serousnes though, yesterday's sunset and the dusk that followed, were spectacular. You can see the redish horizon on that pick as well. Wish I was out and about snapping.

they had two airobatic displays along the beach and the lagoon. both a jet plane formation, and propeller later. either for the boat race or skydiving world cup there - not sure which one. but it was close to this bright red sunset, which as you said was amazing.

I wish I had full sea view yesterday. or the night before with the fireworks on the beach...
