Well, some people complained about the 'hanging glass' at some corners when they started up the cladding.

I really doubt that they won't go ahead with the Guy's re - clad of some sort, lets be honest who the hell would live on the side looking at it as it is, its in the interest of everyone to make Guys look a little more acceptable.

Steel work stalled at the core setback?
None the less, the cladding is coming along nicely.
