Isn't it obvious, and beyond any reasonable doubt where the lifts are located within the structure?

I was talking about construction elevators (which are normally outside the building), but these guys didn't get that!

I don't like the windows design. Much too random.

Yes, it's very fast. I think they're doing about one floor per week now? I'm surprised to see so much MEP stuff already installed on level 8. And the cladding is coming along so quickly too (unlike was the case with Burj Dubai).

The cladding is interesting. I'm looking forward already to the moment they will remove all the wrap paper. For the already unwrapped panels: are these little stripes on the borders little holes or just prints? If it are little holes it will create some cool shadows on the inside at sunset.

In the case of Burj Dubai they had 2 small problems:

1. The Made in Germany cladding panels failed the tests miserably.
2. The Swiss cladding contractor went bancrupt.
