Fantastic picture! The perspective is better than an overview, because I can actually tell how tall it is. Thanks for posting.

It took about 3 1/2 weeks to complete the latest floor. Counting from rasing the scaffolding and core steel to the newest floor. Seemed quicker than that. So this new floor should be finished by the end of the second week in February.

Looks like we've finally reached ~186 feet high.

Some more notes. The start of core steel up to the 5th floor started on Nov 6, 09. Core steel moved up to 6th floor on Dec 23rd. Scaffolding and core steel rose beginning Jan 16-18.

Between 5th and 6th floors they took 7 weeks.
Between 6th and 7/20th floors they took 3.5 weeks.

Faster and faster.

Or it is for the concrete. When the tower is above 1000 feet. They must bring the concrete in this high. Maby with such pipesystems. (Sorry for my bad english)

It looks like they put a plastic shroud over the sub level hanging from the top of the lobby area. I don't know what they could be doing that for, but I'm sure we'll find out soon enough.
