Why is the cladding at the top taking so long? It was growing fast as hell before but the last pod has been painfully slow.

Also, any one can explain this?

Unless the crown will look materially different, do you guys think the height will increase?

Is that the old diagram of the crown or the redesigned one?

Great pictures, lowai. This one in particular shows how (unfortunately) the view from inside the offices of the building will be obstructed by the outer glass wall and its supports. Still a gorgeous building on the outside.

That's not SWFC. ^ I can not tell what building roof top that is, but the top of SWFC does not look like that.

It is the SWFC. The top is angled at the front and back. The cladding also looks the same.

It's not, the cladding would be parallel to the roof line, in the photo the cladding is not, besides that how would the person be taking the picture floating in mid air? Also the slant would be much more steep. The top of the building in the photo also has a fence type structure, the top of the SWFC does not have a fence atop the roof, there is slight indentation where the BMU's are so there would be no platform for the people to stand on. Definitely not the SWFC.

On topic, once the podium gets more cladding I'll update my SSP diagram, as well as the crown portion.

I see they are using copper to clad the base of the tower

I agree. The shoot is probably taken from one oh the IFC's towers to the other with a powerful zoom
