So the cladding is going to stay at a cetain level for 6 months b4 proceeding again for commercial & safety reasons?!? Okayyy. I'm just trying to think what those commercial & safety reasons would be. You're not being very clear whoami.

Sexy pics ferrari_fan!

They are going to open the bottom part before the tower is finished, so they have to complete the interiors for that part. Maybe they just want to focus on that.

Why is ICC so SLOW....

Does anybody know the final height of this bldg? I wonder if they actually have plans to make that bldg even taller.

zergcerebrates, it has always been scheduled to complete construction in 2010. It's such a massive structure. The final hight is in the heading. It's doubtful it will go any higher than a giddying 484m anyway. Isn't that tall enough for you?

The tower looks nice and the contruction is going very well. I like the facade of the tower, it looks very nice with that color of glass.
