ha, yeah i took that way back in 91 from roof of chifley tower.
theres another ridicuolous example of the core racing ahead in perth. back in 74 the 30storey Allendale square had a 30storey core and no floor plates had been constructed yet.lol

sorry to ask again, but what you reckon will be first to top out as worlds tallest resi?
princess or 23marina?
im compilng info for my world tallest resi tower chronologically and only want to add one of them.
both using dif menthods of construction.
the 23marina seems to be using whole floor jumping system wile princess is using core and floor. this means princesss core will reach full height first but 23marinas floors will topout first.
its going to be close.
i want to include 23 marina in diagram but only if its gonna be worlds tallest resi for a short time.

Knowing the contractors, Princess should top first but that is just my opinion and so far the actual progress on both sites has yet to prove me wrong or right.

Princess will top out first as they are slipforming core and using table forms for slabs , Also ACC and Grocon know their towers and are a better builder than DCC

grocon built Eureka in melbourne. and that rose 2 floors at a time. really fast way of construction.
instead of normal 1 floor per pour, they simply formed up the core for 2 floors and poured that. then waited 5 days and up it went again. very fast way. i thought this would go up that fast but seems just normal 1 floor per week which is somewhat slow these days.
