I believe the overall height now is 1,466 feet/446.8m.

Is the antenna going to be given a color scheme or will it remain grey all the way to the top?

There's a track running just below the communications ring and above the parapet where a telescope machine will run.

They just raised another piece!

Edit: I'm pretty sure they installed the 7th piece because the crane looks like its lifting something else off the ground now?!

Great progress, not much big parts left here: [IMG]http://i49.************/28mgv1z.jpg[/IMG]
And more base cladding on the south side:

Definitely not impressed with the base cladding. And the spire/antenna looks far too thin and spindly. But at least we're seeing some visible progress. I really just want this building finished more than anything.

Holy cow now it looks like an antenna!! So much progress this week, it's almost sad to think we'll never see the netting ever again after being so used to it :/ but absolutely breathtaking!
