Yes... big formwork is around floors 80/81, which is up to 301.3 m. What I'm waiting for: to see the slight setback with the retreating edges behind the formwork.

Thanks Imre!
So the formwork is moving up and some scaffolding has been taken away.. Any ideas on what is happening here?

Formwork up? I don't think that one of the formworks has moved up in the last 4 weeks... like The Torch next door, Princess Tower looks more or less the same for a while.

The formwork has not moved upwards at all lately. But they have removed the edges. Cranes are moving so I expect the setback of the footprint soon (although we all expected that weeks ago)...

First pic finally shows a change: the big formwork has gone up almost a floor and the slight setback is visable! I think they'll keep on using this formwork without general reconfiguration. No new core levels meanwhile.

I also suspected change cause I've seen lights on on the entire perimeter of the formwork. Now that the formwork has cleared the wider lower section it should rise at a normal rate (1f/w) or hopefully even faster (1f/5d).

Interesting fact about Princess Tower you don't necessarily notice right away:
The footprint stands slightly out from the other buildings in the tallest block. Not a big deal you would think, but these few feet can make a difference for the view from the sea-facing balconies. Tameer had told me that this was a concious design feature. Well done!!

We knew that since 2 - 3 years back when the site plan was posted.
