The top reminds me of the Frost Tower in Austin, Texas.

Marina 101 doesn't let me down, this won't be a naked shell for ages. Meanwhile the rise hasn't decelerated:
about lv 81 for core (+4 in April) and lv 79 for floorplate (+5 in April).
Top formwork should be a bit over 300m here,
and so I think we can introduce Marina 101 to the "hall of u/c supertalls"...

For comparison with the other Marina supertalls...

Not yet 300 meters, but very soon in 10 days perhaps it should be.

I am looking forward how the roof of Marina 101 will turn out, remember the roof of the Mag 218 tower within the block, the idea that was suggested on renders was fantastic but the execution into reality dissapointet some of us.

They are applying the undercoat there as well and it can be seen from the pictures. I've noticed that when it's a all glass tower they start randomly, but when it's mixed panels they start from the bottom. It might have to do with the way the panels get installed.

oh, you are right...
and another curious thing: there is some rebar below the panels, so there will be a floor plate?!
