Pictures are cool. All of these are great to look at. As for street life, it might be built with the rest of the city. Pretty soon, they'll stop building stuff for the tourists and more stuff centrally located for the natives. After all, they're the ones that actually live there.

Hi all.

Great shots Dennis and OTR.

I estimated those 2 pics from Sept 10.

Section 23A sure went up fast - a few hours.
So 732.9m. There is only 1 more section (23B) left of the size of the wings we see at the top right now. (also the 2 sections of tier 22 that face the crane) The last 3 wings (of tiers 24, 25, and 26) are much smaller and will be attached to the pinnacle pipe as it is jacked.

So the 3 aircraft beacons are up there now. The 3 things that were sticking up above the top of the pinnacle were the supports.
I'm still not seeing the floorplate of the top platform so perhaps they redesigned it or it just hasn't been put up there yet.

One can see the glasses behind the lower crane became dirty all the time because of the exhaust. I wonder why they don't cover them

It feels like once you leave the building, all you have to look forward to is driving past a bunch of contstruction sites and on to the highway. All enclosed in your car. Not my kind of place, I think.
Totally my thoughts as well....

I didn't notice that the outside elevator was gone until now:P
I hope they get the cladding done there quick! Can't wait to see the exterior finally getting finished all the way around!
