The construction plans call for the first sections of cladding to be placed once they begin the cladding structure above the second truss, which should be next month.

I was surprised to see it in red but yes it was red. It also had those small red blinking lights on the edges. Were they here before? Somehow can't recall that. Anyway it looks really good in red.

I like it. Just a little shocking...because I'd only ever seen it blue
I've been wondering what it would look like to light all three super talls the same color. Redundant maybe, but it'd be a nice novelty every now and again.

@Pansori
Great pics! Thanks.

@I love ST
Judging by Jin Mao in the background and the known height of those features, fudging for angle of the photo perhaps about 380-385m
