I may be mistaken but from those latest pictures it looks like the boom of the lowest crane has been lengthened. Does anyone else think this or has it been that long all the time?

I think the mezzanine levels are concrete and they don't cover the entire floor area of the level below.

The interior shots in the vid look to me that they are from levels fairly low in the structure when looking out the windows. Perhaps Armani levels - ?

I noticed right away the level 171 drawing in Smith's book is a misprint. I think they meant to label it 121.

Your Welcome

oh dear, 5.3m is counted as 2? it doesnot make sense as there are 6m counted as one.

btw, if there is no bmu in the lower MF how do they clean the lower facade then?

Wow good point there! Looks like it's almost double (or at least a good third) longer than it previously was. Might just be the angle though.

Are they doing this with an "advanced stitching technology" or with a special camera?

I guess with the same 3D technology camera that the use in Google earth.

Saw pics of the Google van mapping out streets in the UK with the high tech camera mounted on the roof.
