All pics taken this morning by me.

A week ago or so they started building up a steel frame around the metro station exit and some scaffolding around the site. Guess it's simply a security thing to protect pedestrians if something might fall down.
Weather is gorgeous these days in Shenzhen, blue skies and 31 degree today. Lovely conditions to see the tower grow.

They are really making lots of progress with the floors. I hope the cladding comes soon as well.
