Nice... roof part can start soon

But the brownish cladded transition floor here doesn't correspond very well with the shiny white/blue facade. Looks to me like a part of another building (especially with those simple yet uncladded bricks).

No height progress, but the cladding continues. Looks like they've just changed priorities.

Thread title says 80, the thread's first post first says 84, then it says 81 (3+4+74). Confusing...

Yes, progress on top! Floorplate of lv78 is complete, the 23rd floor above the last technical floor. And the core has been raised to lv82!

I've found this sharp version of the render, posted on flickr by Secret Selection:
image hosted on flickr

According to this, one more regular floorplate should follow, plus two differently shaped floors = lv81. So the core must be at roof level already!? But this cone looks quite massiv, not just like circles of fins, so there could be space for technical levels up there. I wonder how many floors this tower finally will have.
The same for the height: the spire is rather tall here - hard to imagine this will end at 338m only, if the Torch is near 300m. Could this lead to 345m, like mentionned at Wikipedia for instance? Or are these just outdated figures of the old design?

core up to LV 81 (LV 82 in core box) now

according to the render, one more regular floor left..
79 regular foors + 2 "special" floors (+ spire) = 81 floors so far..

but i doubt we will see "only" 81 floors, core box still there!
looks more like 81+x floors...
