"Holes" in the cladding are temporary (for ventilation), and "lines" are vents for mechanical & refuge floors.

A smaller crane puts a bigger to the ground by pieces, then a smaller one puts this one the same way, until the "recovery" crane is small enough to be dismantled and lifted down with internal lifts.

We had 2 big cranes installed on the side of the building, one of them has been put down by the other, the second one has been put down very recently by the crane on the 96th level terrace, and you have now on the side of the terrace a smaller crane that will put down the bigger one...

Taking the cranes down seems a bit demanding. In order to put down 2 cranes, you need 2 more cranes. Its lost of money. Is there any other way to do that?

I dare you to think of a better way. By hand? Doubt it, too heavy for people to pick up and far too dangerous. Self-disassembling? Lol. Not even possible. What does that leave you with? Disassemble using another crane.

Missing yet a full cladding row at the very top, to hide aircraft beacon, BMUs etc.
May be 3m high or more (the height of a full floor).

And then only, the whole structure will reach 492m.
