I don't think by this Monday this bad boy will be upgraded to under construction just yet. But, very soon on the near future. I'm sure there's still a few steps they must take to close off the old freight tunnels underneath the site. Was there any confirmation that the freight lines have been properly sealed and the work completed?

Nobody knows yet. Still all we have are those new 3 renders of the bottom half.

I would not be too happy if the chi-spi is going to be gold. I think many would agree. I can't explain as to why the developer would release on there web site a gold rendering of the towers base? I hope it's just to show lighting effects or something to that nature.

I understand your point, however, I would just like to see something other than the stereotypical "Blue Glass" that adorns many of the skyscrapers in this boom. I'm hoping that they might go with a different color.
