I posted this pic before, but I think something like this would be awesome, and also preserve the angled corners:

I forgot how to switch over on my phone.

On another note. Lets see if we can get a race started, when some of these other towers start coming out of the floor.

Boy, I need a job like that where you get a 13 hour lunch break, must be hard to get anything done though!

Oh I see what you mean, that concrete has been there awhile.

Just checked the cams, they are assembling another section of erecting steel and I guess they are going to put it up today. That would bring the hight up to floors 3M and 4.

I'm very surprised to see more steel being added. I would've thought they'd be moving the formworks first. But more steel means more height. This addition should make height ~100 feet.

I will add photos soon, but i just want to say that the framework that looks like it's sitting on the core..... really looks like a rising formwork frame used to take the core from ~ street level to the top.......
