I wonder at what pace they place the panels.

Yes, I've seen those throughout the rise of the tower - I've been following this thread since excavation. I just can't imagine those spindly rods strong enough to support the crane during its rise.

And I've never seen them touch the mast during a rise; they seem to just connect to the lower support.

I'd expect to see pistons exposed during the jump.

Glass can be different. Lot's of facades are not transparent. They're more like mirrors quite often.

Cladding looks awesome but I wonder if we will be able to see the interior glass as it goes up. I'm guessing no so that will be hard for us to follow that progress.

It's almost unreal after so many years of planning and renders to see that cladding actually being installed IRL (through pictures). Just like how I remember seeing the first few colums of SWFC rising back in the day. Oh how time flies.

the cladding is progressing VERY quick, and if they keep the pace, in about 2 weeks they would finish the first zone, in about a month they might reach the 3rd truss belt!

depends on whether they construct the frame for the exterior cladding though. Yes, we need to wait until the first zone is done to see how well it looks. But it does look very sleek and very much like the renders.

I wonder how they are going to light it up when the tower is complete

This Tower sure is rising fast. It seems so complex!

The glass looks incredible!
I just wish the glass panels weren't square and the edges followed the spiral.
