THIS IS SPECTACULAR! There was only one comment at the top of page 2518, so I assume it was overlooked!

No, that gray-white contrast line is where the sunlight meets the shadows

Nope, not yet. At least 1 side is clad only to about 1/3 of it (east side)

Of course we all want the workers to be careful and safe during construction. But for chrissake, they're really milking this one for every hour of paid labor aren't they? I've never seen anything built so slowly in my life as this one moderately-tall skyscraper! Even discounting the 4 years of dithering over the design, we are still in year 9 of actual construction here. In contrast, the Empire State Building started construction on March 17, 1930 and was opened on May 1, 1931.

Finish the damned thing already!

We're actually in year 7...including the 3 long (but necessary) years of foundation to grade work. Above ground has only been the last 4 years.

I understand that it is so, that color depends of out factors.
I'm ineresting about native color of the tower. I supposed that the tower is blue and happy for you city because there are few blue towers in my city. Our builders and architectors unfortunately prefer colorless

It's okay. The fin is really for decoration, nothing else, as far as I know.

That's handled by Rocket propelled Lasers mounted on the International Space Station

The video of the spire going through LED lighting tests was amazing.
