The rocky cladding on the bottom combined with all the glass and steel looks absolutely gorgeous.

It's almost done! Anyone got some listings of the tenants or companies that will occupy SWFC? I wonder if it's not sold out yet.

wudnt it be cool if there were glass elevators that run the length of the building but on the two completely verticle edges so that you could see everything fall beneath you as you got towards the top.

There will be some to bring public directly to the skybridges (behind the glass inside the corners).

They need it yet to put some large/heavy stuff to the top, but I think it will be dismantled soon.

Probably immediatly after the construction of the level 97 skybridge (under construction).

You see it in the close-up picture with a large steel beam hanging from the boom.
