not just parts to jump a crane, but also an entire new crane (right of the core), I think.

Also notice the formworks for the floor slabs below grade ........ it seems to be a procedure similar to the one used for the Shanghai Tower.

This will become my favorite megatall when built. I absolutely love the cladding and especially the shape, which reminds me of 70 Pine Street in Lower Manhattan.

I wouldn't call it a big pour, probably just another floor of the core.
Lots of trucks are needed for that massive amount of concrete you need for it

I'm late to the "cladding color" party but I would vote for the gold. A lot of skyscrapers are the same color these days, gold would stand out nicely. Either way this is one of my favorite buildings under construction.

You must be a fan of the Mercury City Tower.

Yay! There should be a party every time a milestone is reached!
I have a feeling that this is going to be a huge thread once it starts to rise a bit more.

They started adding new steel parts on top of the excisting ones in the middle of the core. Must be higher now than Crane #3 and Crane #1 still didn't jump.

Gold is good, silver will do too.

Boy I didn't expect them to jump the crane before moving the formwork one more floor up.
