This is probably my fave high rise U/C at the moment.

What is the construction in the large square in the center of the above pic?

Looking great, but does anyone know when the tower is toping off? (not the facade, only the structure...)

The last floors are very higher ones, especially around the square aperture and level 94 (with access escalator to the ob deck at 96).

Check all the diagrams and models posted on this thread, that will give you a good answer.



And don't forget the building is over 80 m. wide at the top! It gives the scale.

Great pics Sky.
It mus take great skill to handle those cranes especially under windy conditions to avoid hitting the building panels.

Yeah, that's why Calatrava is great, structure itself speaks.
