TBH, pretty envious. I love Q1, but the building was really let down by some poor quality glass...

Found this on the website d1tower.com

October 2012

- Maintaining above 600 workers, construction work has continued to progress on the D1
Tower project during the summer months
Structure and façade : The structure including the roof façade steel skeleton of the buildinghas been completed, whilst 92% of the façade panel work has also been completed with thebuilding effectively sealed to Level 74

- Ground-level external podium works including concreting of podium slabs and walls for
swimming pool, as well as water feature structures, are nearing completion. This will allowcompletion of the podium floor glazing and installation of the feature timber canopy
With respect to the Podium Timber Petal rapping the base of the tower, the timber components and column supports for Petals 2, 3 and 5 have been shipped from Germany and delivered to site, the installation of Canopy support columns and brackets for petals 2 and 3 is in progress and the installation of 1st Timber Petal started mid September

- The top half of the building is at various stages of finishes and fit-out. Mechanical,
electrical, plumbing and fire services are essentially 80% complete, while internal
block-work and plasterboard partitioning, painting, joinery and tiling works are well
advanced on the upper floors of the development. All the plant rooms have been fitted-out with the machinery and equipment and are approaching final connections readying for
initial testing

- Looking specifically at the lower half of the building, the air-conditioning system has been flushed and initially commissioned. Bosch and Miele appliances have been delivered and are in the process of being installed, while all eight lifts and service lifts have been
commissioned and are running

- Fit-out of the apartments on the first 40 floors has essentially been completed, with marble kitchen bench tops installed until Level 30 and bathtubs until Level 23

I think most people think it's a nice building. If only Q1 were clad in the same glass, it'd be perfect.

Great looking structure and I think the base will be nice too, but it's very lonely there, some more 100m buildings are good.
