The outer curtain wall is really taking shape. I remembered when the core first came up everyone was comment on how massive it is, now we have finally seen its full diameter.

Incredible progress on this, when I was there during the EXPO it was still a huge hole in the ground... I wish towers in the UK would fly up so quickly! Sorry if this has been talked about already but what are the details of an observation deck on this monster? Will there be one and if so at what height? Thanks

They are building it so fast because they are not following the welding codes. Steel heavy plates must be preheated before welding!
