going by AltinDs great piccies, BD is up to lev48 in core box or 180m/600ft.
its actually moving quiet slow compared to SWFC which is now 50m higher @ 230m. but obviously BD is all-concrete and lot more intricate then the basic core and steel plates of SWFC.FYI ICC is approx 100m atm.

Great update Altin. Brilliant.

Yeah i counted 48 floors also. As it gets higher and thinner maybe it will speed up a touch. We'll see.

Anyway, i wish i could dance as good as Spiderman
