What you can see represented on that diagram below the 300 metres mark is just the inner skin. The core is inside that.

The bottom 5 floors appear bare. I suppose it is still a construction base/building site at those lower levels so no need to clad it yet.

Ok, guys, enough with the celebrations and back to work!!!!!!!


I don't think it will be so transparent after the internal cladding has been installed. I guess it will look someone more transparent than the usual cladding because its not attached to the solid tower and is, like the ad says, a curtain around the tower.

Oh yes, definitely, just not THIS December considering it's not even close to being topped out yet. Your "damn question" has been answered! Also, just for the record, it's one of the dumbest questions I have ever seen, anywhere.

What a question . It's quite logical cladding won't be finished until this december...and probably not until next december too.
