There are some new rumors about the actual height.
The highest roof should be at 161.5 m and there will be a steel- glass 3 floors structure that should reach about 170m

During this week Milan gave hospitality to the members of the board of the BIE, in order to show the projects for the Expo 2015.

For 3 days Milan was enlightened by some special light-effects in the sites where all the skyscrapers will rise...

Here some enchanting pics of the site of the New Lombardy HQ 'scraper, enjoy!













Thank you, Spider-Gusme!

Nope. Not yet, at least. They will decide the next year. This week they presented to the BIE all the projects involving the city for the Expo.

we forgot to update this 3d.


BTW, the construction speed will increase dramatically from now till the next spring.

Workers will be 850, instead of the actual 150 and the working hours will be 24, so non-stop works till the end of the structure (2009).

During the last week the italian president (Napolitano) visited the worksite and there was a little ceremony with the presentation of the project by the architect Cobb.

Now, some pics.

The ceremony:






Update of yesterday:
