There's been a lot of pent-up demand and expectation developing over the past couple of years, so now that information is becoming more available, we're all pretty excited to see it.

So, what exactly is rising right now? The formwork? The core? Actual floors? I'm a little unsure about what I'm actually looking at right now.

The core, walls, formwork and floors are all being built and rising atm!

Also it looks like they're working on floor 5

I still can't believe this is going up so fast. I feel like just yesterday we were staring at the same old pictures of empty desert with some sad looking rebar sticking out of the dirt. And now you can actually see it taking shape!

Thanks! I wasn't aware that everything was rising at once.

Wow, that is just incredible! I wish I could see all the pictures that people are posting though, all I get is an "image shack" icon. Is there something I'm missing? Also, makes me wonder why they don't build these things in the US?

Can you see the tilted formwork at the left? Means that's the extreme of the wing

The FAA won't let something like this get built in the US.
