I think so. Just look at the renders. These huge balconies for sure will add hell of a lot of stress to the structure. And whats more, the profile of the tower is quite narrow. I'm actually not suprised about this extra beams at all.

Yes, these are the 18 meters long reinforcment beams to be encased in concrete, we talked about in the past. more of them will go on the bottom part of the tower in the comming months.

Thanks for the MASSIVE photos! I only had to stand about six feet back from my monitor to see them!

Any photo/construction update on this tower is always very welcome and much appreciated.

It is great to have large pictures. More detail, and suited for desktops.
But smaller ones (1024x768 or 800x600?) with links to the large ones
would actually be better.

Either way, the effort to take and post them is really apreciated.

Great pictures! This is really progressing well. I'm glad to see that there is at least one other person who can take pictures!

Haha, look at the last pic, the 23 Marina contractor will be forced to soon shift their site offices elsewhere in the podium area of that tower .
