Now that the exterior and landscaping is complete and all the work currently being done on the interiors, I personally enjoyed the MI4 action. Lots of top platform coverage including the best long lens shots ever - great stuff.

Now - more info on how the fitout is progressing would be good. Pics wouldn't hurt either ...

Hey Fury,

Happy to hear that you like the pics

The finishing of all interior work is breathtaking. It has a good mix of materials, although the veneer panels dominate the walls. However, my pictures might leave an exaggerated impression on the amount of wood used, because I was there to focus on the veneers.

Hey Altin,

yes, still around and well, thanks

A photo which is not on my website: It shows the Main Elevator Lobby. Note the "images" above each elevator. They are carved out of the marble and backlit. Quite impressive!

This skyscraper is really nice but it bothers me somehow. Maybe it's because the top 200 meters are so thin.
