The core seems to take up so much of the floorplate in this picture that there is barely room for office space. I suppose it is an opticle illusion though. At least the floors should have plenty of natural light.

From yesterday - looks like the parts for the "jump section" of the S crane have started arriving, I was told these are brand new cranes straight from France.

Sept 18th - Bumper Cars

The amusement park on the street level is open.





Piping was laid over the past few days, as the work progressed sections would be knocked off and the flexible end re-attached.

They are working, but not much progress in the vertical direction in quite a while.

The steel plan is straightforward and simple, it's almost like there going slow on purpose, (with the floors, even completeing pouring operations.) as not to catch up with the core.

She's looking great though.!!
