I'd figured everything will be complete and tenants moving in by next summer. However, if you only care about the tower then since the topping out has already occurred, the next milestone is spire, which should come within the next month. After that, the glass should be completely install at the top by the end of the year.

love the glass of both buildings...it is just so different from the cheap one they seem to use in most buildings in china or in the east in general (of course there are exceptions, but they are just exceptions,...).
Quality, that's what makes western buildings so much better (only dubay probably compeetes in quality with some of the projects) than the ones built just to try to impress for theyr highth (and with quality I talk about materials, yes, but especially about the design).
Just can't wait to see both building finished.

This is supposed to have a wind turbine? I didn't know that.

Yeah.

yeah, it'll look like a smaller spire to the left of the spire on Carlos123's post. I didn't know about the turbine until a few days ago, so we're all in the same boat here.

Wow, the spire is rising step by step now. Watching the latest pics by Carlos, I'd say:
Welcome among the supertalls, BofA!

Btw: What about the smaller crane? Is it still in use or just waiting to be removed? There's not much mobility for this one without touching the building's angle...
