Wow stunning !!

So, a floor to be completed every 4 days, and 6 floors will be fully completed by the end of 2014 which is in less than 2 months from now (I expect them to reach the 10th floor or something like that by that time) ..

I did expect that they have to work very fast but, I've got to say that this is even faster than what I've ever expected

In my point of view, it's enough because it's on the 4th floor so far and 6th floor at the end of this year. So, I thinks they have to build only not to worry about the foundation.

6 floors completed (not started) at the end of this year. Maybe working on the 10th or even more.So, you're right 4 years from now would be enough
