Wow!!! Don't you think they might have finished the building within the end of 2007? At least the facade, not talking about interiors.

It's planned to be "open" on march 2008, so I think exteriors could be done at the end of the year, included cladding.

Interiors are on the way in the lowest floors... and the podium is topped out.
