Hi Cul.

Here is one from 29th - can't remember from who or where - not great but it does show 1 (or more) column up for level 160 Mezz. 3.



That is all I have since Altins' shot.

Very nice updates ! Standing on floor 140th must be a very exciting experience ! thanks for the pics...


PD: Architects also work on construction sites and buildings supervising, verifying workers job including that of engineers, too. It doesnt mean everytime, but on many times and at several sites around the world...

Drawing and designing are only one of architects´ abilities among many...

Imre, thank you for that amazing photo collection! I hope you didn't mind but I forwarded your gallery link to several of my friends back from my university's school of architecture so that they could also get a really good idea of some of the interior components of this great tower.

IDKBLK - You can find the full size shots by clicking on Imre's main to go to his main gallery and then I think, going into the latest BD one. It took me a few minutes as well messing around to get to the right page where you could find full-size photos. The button is a tiny "Full Size" magnifying glass icon near the top left of the photo. You might have to search a bit but it's there!

Fury - Thanks for showing us the higher tier plans, sections, and elevations. Really helps to understanding what is connecting to what and some of the detailing involved.

Amazing shots from everyone.

Thanks for the amazing pictures Imre. I'm kinda surprised at how much marking and "graffiti" is on the building interior as well as the chipping concrete. The concrete is probably normal.
