The tower rises 100 meters every half a year. Rough, but pretty accurate.

6/20/2011-100m

12/6/2011-200m

5/16/2012-300m

now~400m

10-12/2013~580m
4-6/2014~632m

Facade looks great! love the double skin.

PS. Can people please stop quoting the same picture(s) over and over again? It's annoying to scroll through the same pictures on the page over and over again. Better use the @ or the , a good habit in most subforums. Thanks!
