Nice to see cladding over the mechanical floors. Those gaps looked terrible.

I just noticed on the last picture. Is the crane delivering the spire on top?

Just because most workers on the site are indians doesn't make it a Indian structure

If I well remember, the developer is actually a British-Pakistani. Oops

i've whatched the crane briefly a couple of times the last few days - to me it looks actually like it's already the permanent one used for window cleaning. I've only seen it extended out or folded back in so far, never going over head. It's mounted on top of the first "ring" alongside the second ring. So not on the very top. Pretty sure it's the window cleaning lift.

Brilliant night pics! Crown of The Torch was dark and silent, but some interior work done there, I suppose.

To presence: What a coppice of scaffolding on the top now! This should be for the missing little spiral and the spire.
In the meantime, the facade work along the tower isn't completely done yet.

I feel like the podiums are rather unresolved on a lot of these, but the density might explain that. What are the sales like in most of these towers?
