From outside yes .... I think I've even noticed the site boarding outside was being removed.

What actually makes me happier about the big Ben being completed, is the possibility that the developer would go back and complete their other 29F tower that has been structurally completed, but left bare-concreted for at least 6 years

More likely, as usual nowadays: fire-hazardous aluminum-plastic sandwiches

I went through this thread from the first posts.
Nice to see the construction history of it.

Funny fact is that people were already talking about when the crown would start construction in late 2008. Thatīs almost 5 years ago!

Quite a slow snail this one... Thankfully itīs finally looking like completion is nearby!
