The first one I think its porpouse is to add some curve to the crown, I'm clueless about the second one.

think you are right. I was just looking back at the models and the vertical beams on the corners are supposed to be a lot thicker.

So the frame where they construction worker is standing in (left hand side of the pic) is also going to be cladded. Now the top part makes sense.

Yes, there's the almost continuous framing of a curved lateral edge.

I've never realized those rows of "signs" on the concrete. Looks a bit like the greek letters for "psi" or "phi"... but now I see these tags(?) have been used before, too, before putting on cladding. Let's see if the purpose of the dark attachments near the top floor is the same: to fix the glass facade later...

This construction is incredibly fast. I remember first seeing it a year ago and I thought it looked really funny because of the central column being so much higher than the exterior scaffolding. At that time, it looked like the Princess Tower was almost completed.

Now it's spire time for Elite Residences! The first sphere can be found on top as well.
This one will surely top out before Princess Tower.

I would've never believed that a year ago. Fantastic pace on this one.
