What are they doing up there? This building hasn't progressed at all for the past few months or so.

They recently took down the exterior construction elevator. Work is progressing. It does seem to be taking a long time to finish the crown and finally top this building out. But I wouldn't say it hasn't progressed.

It has actually progressed a lot lately, the cladding has gone up very fast and is at the top now, so we should see the crown being finished soon as there focus will be on that now and not the cladding.

From malec's post on page 2:

So if the render is accurate, then they are at the point of the red arrows (where the diagonal support columns end) and have four "floors" left? Or is the render wrong and the diagonal supports go all the way to the top? Perhaps the diagonals are temporary and will be removed?

Forgive me if this has already been answered. They have been working on this crown for so long that I'd probably have to sift through 50 pages to find the answer. This tower started out slow due to the flood, then shot up like a rocket, and then hit a brick wall.

There happens a lot on the tower, but not in terms of climbing.

Forget old renders, They're just for demostration purposes. What's there now is the highest the tower goes IMO.

Although a novel enough design, and in a fine setting, ultimately to me this looks like what happens when you sneak up behind a skyscraper and tap it on the shoulder...

Still, looking forward to seeing this finished and tidied up

Was someone saying lately how great picture hosting tinypic is huh

Try imgur Imre. For now it works well for me - easy and intuitive. But obviously it needs time to find out if their pictures stays online long.
