if anything, build it in the desert and connect a cable. it will take decades to break even. not an appealing option today.

Most towers end up staying fairly empty too, which makes it even worse. I was asked by a friend from Dubai if all the condos here in Toronto actually had people living in them, as he's so used to half empty condos sucking on hydro.

I was talking about a solar farm, not solar panels on a tower.

Yesterday I noticed that the jumping up of the core had commenced. Today the 20th level on the core was fully reveled. Let's hope the jumping is still continuing and by the end of the day the 21st would be reveled as well.

Thanks, the day was okay for me and I didn't stumble over a black cat.
As for Pentominium, progress looks alright, with core at lev 22 (IMO we should count in two formwork floors, that can be seen through the gap) and slab at lev 14. And perhaps on a lucky day, ACC workers might find number "20" to fix it to the core wall, too.

Hi everyone! In the photo above, I think we can see the side of the building where type1 apartment is. It supposed that this type has 2 terraces, one in the living room and one in front of the bedrooms. The terrace in front of the bedrooms i can see it but the other one no. Is a change in plans or they will build them later?

Forgive me for my english.
Thanks in advance!

I just realized how crazily spoiled we all are that a 516m tall building just hits the first page of the skyscraper forum.

I think 10 years ago it would have been the top thread for two years on a row.
