cladding progress is quite unique about this tower, most buildings progress floor by floor but this tower progresses upward skipping a floor out between 2 floors. But nice to see cladding starting above the safety net.

This was but a lofty dream and an impressive render when I first heard about this project. Can't believe how far it has gone, wonderful stuff!
