But the fact that we're now seeing workers on site in addtion to a the lighted cranes is definately a good sign. Now all we need is for that ugly half-built brick that is the Pentominium to restart and we'll be all good.

Last night they have arranged the neon lights on several spaces and floors to create a huge TAV light-sign on the top 15 or so floors of the tower, also today one of the cranes had the boom lowered, the rope/cable was down and it seams to be picking up something from the ground.

The tall block will looks so fantastic when this is all cladded. And lets hope they get the Pentominium cladded out at about 200m or somethign like that not just concrete hulk

Redesign? I thought they have stopped for a while and will now continue the construction but with the same design. Do they certainly have a new design?

Still the same board is there as before , cladding already begun it should be the same design , maybe they can do something with the top section and roof but not sure.

Princess Tower is topped out so they have a chance to build a taller one now, we will see , Marina 106 also coming , big race which will be the tallest one

There are no more floors to be build, the concrete work is completed, only the steel roof structure is left
