7/[email protected](12-15h??)->7/21: 48+/-2 panels
7/21 -> 7/22: 26+/-1 panels

Seems to have slowed down a bit from 19 to 22 comparatively to 16 to 19.

Doorways!



I guess they're doing two doorways onto each terrace, one on each side. I like the little piece of cladding! Can't wait to see the door in there, too.

Wow, 508 meters HIGHER! That's, like, 1017 meters tall!

Yeah, I don't know if you've been reading the thread lately, but the news broke on Saturday.

He's keeping track of how many panels are on in each photo, and then figuring out when the photos were taken.

Someone should make a smiley type thing like that for "old news."

@ MetalliTool: Good point. I have no idea. When Imre does updates, I think he tries to get all of the cladding, so maybe he's just keeping track of Imre's updates.

"Perhaps"

If you want a concrete answer, here is this:

At at least one point, it appears that the height was set at 818. That is all that we TRULY know FOR SURE at this point
