Okay, now that our thread has been renewed, we can discuss the tower.

I am hopeful to see the full spire by the holidays.

My speculation on the spire is that they may be installing broadcast wiring or perhaps wiring for light so that the spire will illuminate from within.

Not very exciting to look at but I guess it fits in well with the skyline. I like the cladding though for some reason. That's sort of grown on me a bit since I first saw it.

THE most brilliant, beautiful, wonderful new skyscraper in the world. This tower must be seen in person to be fully appreciated.

so finally, after the spire is now done, the tower has reached its pinnacle height of 1,046 feet. the red light on top should look neat, especially with a lit crown.

the crane should be taken down immediately now right?


FINIT!!!!!!

Spooky, I'm not sure construction is done yet.

The walls have yet to complete along with the rods.

We will see what advances next week.

As for now, I am trying to focus construction on both the outside and the inside (as seen in my recent shots showing the construction through the windows).
