Nice pic there Venhenrik.

Still quite a long way before the cladding catches up and makes up for the earlier delays.

As far as I can track it down, SOM is doing the architecture, as well as structural and MEP engineering (mechanical, electrical & public health).

Chief, I think you mean plumbing, though public health is good too.

Wow, those pictures are amazing!!! But it's weird, because there are just a few towers near BJ, so it's difficult to get a clear impression of its height. So you say it's 570 m, but i can't compare that with any other building!
