Great updates!

Don't they already grant you reduced admission to the Main Tower observation deck by now

CYstillFI made amazing new photos of the construction side.
As he's a member of the forums I hope he'll post those pictures here as well.

Especially the main entrance looks awesome!

As ZZ-II said, of course. I am just using different servers for each platform, so sometimes it takes a bit longer.

So finally the update upon this construction, from Tuesday. In the meanwhile they started installing the first window elements.













The first window elements onsite.

As mentioned above, those photos are great!

And that main entrance on the last one is massive.
Really liking the progress, Opernturm will fit nicely into the skyline.

What a luck you had been there, Patrick. The blue glas looks promising! Can't wait to see it combined with sandstone facade.

Yep, dklicious., the entrance is extra ordinary, very unique and - though the height of the tower isn't - this part is surely impressive.

Indeed I expected more grey/silver glass. But blue is also fine
