He probably meant that its less challenging than proper building to the very top. But I do agree that this one is quite unique and tough to construct, beacouse this one cant be just rised like for instance bk spire, becouse its consists of three spires on angle joining at the top. And this angle especcialy prevents the spire to be just lifted from inside of the building, or even if possible then for sure make it way more complicated operation.

If he wasn't there then I would have had a field day inside. I pleaded with the site engineer to take just one pic but he didn't budge. So I just went to the 3rd floor of the adjacent building and took a few pics and a video.

Here are 2 of the pics. I'll upload more later along with the video which shows an excavating truck doing its thing at the right most corner of the site.

^Yes really sicking. But now there are huge projects of replacing all the old building with 20-40-50 storey towers. That includes new roads and the lot. That tower u/c in the back around of the above pics is apart of one.
