I assume this crane has to finish it's work and come down before the building around the mini core can be completed. I'm curious what's inside the mini core? Is it stairs and lift shafts - I can't imagine more than one narrow stair flight and 2 small lifts fitting - and that would be a squeeze! I can't imagine that they'd have this wing of the building without having a means of escape (stairs) there.

Magnificent pictures!

Will they now start building around the smaller core?

You and Renzo eh! What are you like?

As I also like it, we can agree that all the main movers and shakers are in accord.

I was wondering, surely dark grey or even black...would be a better colour.

We have discussed a few times how the blinds being down in a building can ruin the appearance...light blinds only accentuate this surely?

Maybe with the angle of the glass, they will be hardly noticeable as the sky is reflected.

Eddyk, brilliant shoot!
Is Tower 42 open for public or only offices?

Aren't there complaints from the hospital about the noise? Not that they can do much about it anyway...
