Although it's not the higest at least it looks a lot better than some of those Marina towers...

Not sure I like the originality of it but the height is and it beats boxy for sure

There is a structure being build on top of the floorplate. That box-like structure is completed now and covered in black undercoat. I have no idea what it would be, or if it means no additional concrete floor would be build on top.

Maybe they got rid of the "crown" weve seen on renders Altin?

Whatever this is, does not effect the crown. Maybe is part of the mechanical level, maybe is a stabilising water tank.

I can see the tower most of the time every day. Today they've continued working on the top on this big box Altin pointed out. Cranes and lifts operating.

Slow at the moment - which is no news - but definitely not on hold.
