You don't know if they haven't already started, the scaffolding is so dense that we will probably not see anything before they take down the black scaffolding around the base

the tower cladding will resume in mid-april according to officials.

as for the podium cladding, it is reportedly already under way. but any progress is currently obscured by the black netting around the podium. most likely at this stage Permasteelisa is still installing the anchors that will attach the glass fins to the podium structure.

alan, can you please tell us if you know when the cranes will make the next jump? looking at earthcam they still look a little bit low compared to the current set of topmost perimeter columns.
