The tower will be completed in December 2011 with the grand opening in the Spring of 2012.

The current height is 428m, just under where the 2nd pod will start. But it's most likely that it will get the same treatment as the 1st pod, therefore they will first let the tower body grow (probably to the top of the body) and then construct the pod around it. They might even start with the pod at the end of the year, don't expect it in the coming 2 months.

But since the next level will be the same height we will see a change in the body. The 1st signs of that are the new steel tubes with a bend that have been delivered to the site today.

Incredible construction speed T-ST looks awesome, and I bet selling T-ST related merchandise is proving to be a nice boost for the local economy too! (are those 2 metre or so models for sale or was that one a custom build?)

It's one of the outer parts of the tower, you can't really see it under the netting.

It's not just the tower itself but how they are making it. Really fascinating,,

The weather here has been balmy hot and it may continue for another 2 weeks. They can get ahead of schedule am sure.
