somebody in the Marina Heights Tower has taken initiative to light up this dull building at night. (around the 20th floor with two blue light bulbs on the balcony). nice.

the exposed corners of the torch are being cladded these days I noticed, and as we can see on altin's pics.

I think so, and depending from the progress of the interiour works, 23Marina might be next ... otherwise Princess Tower would follow.

Considering they are all males, it's a given ... though they have harness and liking it or not, it's their job and it has to be done. Though, I doubt the contractor would force people to climb up there that they know would not handle it.

Keep also in mind that having your familiar workplace slowly climbing upward every eeek, trains you to handle the ever increasing heights.

It doesn't work that way. The scafolding is needed if manual work is performed. I would say it is because of the LED panels cause the top section of the roof feature is wrapped too.

Does anybody know when that ugly scaffolding around the spire is going down? It looks like it has reached its full height.

When they'll complete the job for which they erected it (the scaffolding) in the first place.
