Yeah, a familiar story with most projects these days, but it's good to finally see the floors starting to rise.

Yes, now that they are preparing the formwork for the floor plates, it should rise quickly.

It SHOULD rise quickly is right, doesn't mean that it will.

I think it will rise about as fast as princess tower.

I doubt that: Writting in steel might compromise the structural integrity ... nice view btw. It was like a eclips today: You could fully see the sun circle and even certain spots on his surface.

That's true, I know this from personal experience. My cousin drilled holes in the frame of my bike back when I was like 14y old, he told me it would make it go waaaaay faster, I got on, took off down the road and literally 2 minutes later it completely collapsed in pieces. The rest I'll leave to your imagination.

On Topic: Yeah, that view is something else huh ... would they usually stop work up there in these conditions, or what?

PS: Pity you didn't take a pic of those spots!

It seems the workers on the "CORE" are faster than the rest of the building. Should they not slow down on the core so the rest of the building can catch up?

I mentioned this before. It looks a little odd to me ... I mean, it's all core and no building/floors. lol Thing is, has it already slowed down? If not, will it? To allow the floors to catch up. Depends on how fast the floors will rise from here on in I suppose...?
