A water bar?????

What will be served here without stating the obvious, or are they expecting dehydration in the fast moving elevator?

that can't be the same spot in the lobby. Just look at the roof, impossible.

Well, I can no longer take part in the 1000th page celebration, but still 1001 is a beautiful number for the sake of the One Thousand And One Nights, which is quite Ó propos.

Congratulations for the most successful thread in SSC.

If so, it's got to be a month...at least.

I know, guess that the cladding's cleaning will start few days, months before the grand opening. Some, few of those windows, has cleaned allready? Because from the photos, some of them (not the newest windows) looking less dirty than others...
Now, about the plan who @Oasis-Bangkok posted: the exterior line of that plan, looks like BD, so?

btw: Congratulations for the number of 1000+ pages

And you can add around 36,000 posts from the 29 threads that became before this one.

But it's not a surprise that this one got the most posts, it's the second world tallest building that is completed during the existence of SSC and the only one that started construction after the birth of SSC.
