Excellent update, kix

Last poles to heaven...

We can see now the anchors for the top bracing too:

Looking closer, it is possible that the upper skybridge will be one level higher than I thought...

Final location of the skybridge:




The columns were not quite finished... Building is now topped at level 101 floor.

I've been lost with that enormous temporary structure

But you're right saying the aperture would look too high without that skybridge
