The flooring around the baby core is going good as well.

Fantastic update.

I don't understand people cussing the facade. This photo in particular shows how "light" the glass looks on this building: http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4084/...37156edd_b.jpg

Just brilliant

I'd like to once again point out that this tower pretty much got above ground as late as January of this year, and now is around 185m tall. Just a reminder to those who think super-fast construction is something that only happens on the other side of the globe.

I can only imagine how jaw dropping this view will be when the tower is complete!

Thanks for the great update Matto.

It seems they have slowed down on the cladding, I would like to see progress on that too.
