I wonder how the traffic is on SZR with all those beautiful towers around it... A lot of traffic jams?

Noticed the construction on top already in a pic some weeks ago, also no progress on the cladding since weeks... tower seems to be on hold.

It seams to be different but the render on the project board is still the same old one.

That's a skinny one, straight 342 slab sides that really extenuate the height of it. Let hope the design changes cos its totally out of context with the rest of the buildings in the immediate vicinity.

342 is on top of the spire which will be on top of the roof feature, yet to be build. The slab height is around 270 - 280 meters.

i think ive worked out roof is about 280m
the pryramidal top will lucky to be 20m, thus 300m. + the spire which looks 20m in render. but you can easily add a 40m spire to reach 342m.

Just a small insignificant progress on both (but still some progress)
