There will be one big room in the whole building with information for people who can't read threads.

Hi all.

Nice pics and diagram Imre and Cul.

Looks like they are almost finished the decking for level 157 floor - should be pouring deck slab soon. Looks to me the columns they are erecting are 6.4 meters tall - same as the first 2 steel levels. Could just be the angle of the shots though. Looks like there is points 1/2 way up for girders - which would make sense as both level 158 and 158 Mezz. are 3.2 meters high.

158 Mezz. is the last level of tier 16 so there will be a setback/terrace facing South on level 159. If the columns being erected right now are 6.4 meters high then the top of them ( top of tier 16 ) are 604.9 above ground. If they are 3.2 then .....

Amazing pictures!

One part I am confused about crane part. I thought all three luffing cranes will be down and install another luffing crane to handle steel part?

Great photos, looks like they're finally getting ready to put cladding/vents on the mechanical floors. I'm wondering though, will the steel section of the tower be occupied, and with what?

Only about 40 m left...I wouldn't say that's out of the question at all. It still has 200 m total to go, so i would hope they can add 40 m in a little over 2 months... Otherwise, we'll be waiting years before this thing is done.
