I though it's a video shot. Rendering is a 3D-visualization, as we speak

Hi all.

I wonder if the cranes on levels 99 and 159 are still lifting anything or just sitting ? With the cladding getting close to completion the cranes should be removed soon.

I imagine shortly after the cladding is done we should be seeing BMU testing. I still find it strange that they never put the top platform on and therefore will have no BMU to clean the pinnacle as was planned.

The cladding looks great and really enhances the structure. I for one enjoyed the fact they had problems getting the cladding started. It gave us a chance to see the concrete work longer.

The landscaping on the hotel entrance side must be looking good. Weeks ago it was looking half done. December is still a ways away so they have some time left ...

It's too bad this magnificent structure is being built by mostly very poor workers. Even with all the secrecy with this project if the workers were more affluent we would be seeing many internal shots taken with cameras that were snuck past security.
