Looks like tier12 is completed on the last pic. Cladding above 4th mech floors should start soon, only a few floors below to cover.

Ember, Window cleaning services required or more rain (NOT).

Sky: Cladding same as all other floors that are being put in place below 1st mechanical.

OTR: Where did 5th floor steel go?
