HOW has it been over three and a half years since that happened? We're so fortunate that the flood and subsequent delay didn't cause this project to get cancelled.

100% agree!

And we're fortunate that 234sale doesn't stop posting his pics on skyscraperlist.com.
Here's his Infinity Tower update from 13 Sep 2010:

Floorplates are more and more closing in on the top of the core:

the core is finished as you can see the slipform is gone (2 weeks now). kind of sad to see the structure nearing its end! but what a beauty it is.

Don't like at all this cluster, heavily dense quarter (towers are great, Ocean Heights is a beauty), but I'd rather prefer buildings placed less close to each other, wonder if sunlight ever touches inner streets

Probably not and I'm pretty sure the place has its own microclimate.
