Hi all.

Thats some nice stuff Altin.

Looks like 6 levels is what the office annex addition is going to be. The columns don't stick up above the top beams that are going to be the roof, like they did above the previous steel levels.

In the shots of the base the cladding looks cleaner and really shiny. Perhaps the heavy rains washed them some. It gives a some idea of what it is going to look like after it is cleaned......

Fantastic

I that pic of the elevator, it would be cool if they switched off every light except the one at the top and then took a pic.

You'd have a black photo with a tiny white dot at the top. There'd be nothing to see.

Cable can still snap, but there are more than one safety installations which will stop the elevator from falling 500m...
