The speed at which this tower has gone up is truly astonishing!

It looks like another one of the cranes has been removed - but it is just exactly hiding behind the one in the foreground (I think?)

Besides cash and man hours, please elaborate on the others. If anything this construction pace saves space, resources, and time.

Oh my goodness, the fifth section's almost cladded halfway!

I hope they don't wait for the section to be clad for the steel to advance.

That cladding looks almost unreal like a render. I don't think we'll get to see a facade as good as this any time soon on any skyscraper.

They are already starting on the final turret. Once that is done they will begin with the crown.

The cladding looks better if you look upwards on it. It looks very dull and dim if you look downwards on it (e.g. from Lowai's apartment).
