as you can see theyre filling in the top and its almost complete, the crown is steadily progressing and theyve reached the top of the building in the inside.

BOA and the recladding of Verizon is also visible. BOA will be the tallest building in that picture in a few months.

Thanks Rob, Spooks & Carlito (is it ever warm enough for you?).

I'd hazard a guess they're still prioritising the interior works over a slowly climbing facade...including all the modern mechaisms in the plant/LMR.

Hmm I'm slightly disappointed with this tower so far. Will it look anything like this rendering in the end?



Or is the fašade nowhere near complete yet (I'm talking about the transparent ceramic stripes)?

I was wondering the same thing. Are there any daytime renderings of this building so we might know how the facade will actually look when finished? Maybe there is a reason why all the renderings are either at night or cartoonish looking

those pics are a bit old. their main priority is in the interior, not the crown, they need the office space ready.

can someone answer this question? I'm very curious as to what the answer will be. I was thinking the exact same thing for a long time

I really like how this building will turn out at night but the daytime is a different story. It looks kinda classy in grey but you cant really see all the little bars to it has a dull matte looking finish.
