Hi all.

Great update - thanks for posting Nord.

They've started adding another section to the supercolumns.
The highest grey columns are at the roof of the 5 level podium.

Excellent speed. I imagine the lower levels are progressing with the same pace.


Ray.

No, I am pretty sure z0rg is correct, it hasn't grown in quite a while.

one answer may be CNY, but then that would only explain no progress in a few weeks and not the whole of febuary

Guess they're waiting for the floors to catch up or something. Perhaps there's supposed to be some anchoring with the podium

But ...

It is on this side of the site. Perhaps it is temporary support for the large overhang on this side of the podium ?

hi.

all of the questions above r related. as it is now, the corewall progress has reached to typical floor height level (office zone) as previously lower retail floors which are difference in height. for that mean, the corewall progress will temporary stop until a new climbing formwork system is fully installed to replace the older one (previously covered with green netting), so to increase the formwork climbing speed.

like you noticed, the red frames being assembled on the ground are actually the new climbing formwork frames and platforms.
