Very useful video indeed. I wonder how big the size of these time lapse videos are in giga bites or whatever measurement it is...

It's about 35 stories at this time.

The tower will be 82 floors in total.

I still hope that the technical floor in the middle will also have the curved floorplan and won't divide the buildings so much...
