This tower is really the opposite of the WTC1 in terms of construction speed. Unbelievable how fast the core is going up.

I can't believe the core is that high already. Awesome! Thanks for all the photos everyone.

The core looks like blocks, but that can't be. Is it just the pattern from the forms we are seeing?

Oh, okay. Thanks for the information. I didn't know Heron Tower did the top-down method.

The boxes are where there will be doorways. The put temporary formwork in them which will eventually be removed.

Correct me if I'm wrong but this thing seems to grow by about 1 floor each 2 days!

I think the steel bars are just for the first floor.

But the core rises approximately by 3 metres a day.

A few snaps with the 17-40 today. For reasons of a little technical experiment I was conducting, they're all black and white.

Those black and white photos turned out really good, cybertect. Nice contrast.
