What you'r looking at is layers and layers of dust. Nothing has gone away. It just needs to be cleaned, that's all.

I don't know, but don't expect for it to open before early 2010.

These things give shadows so I doubt in layers of dust theory.

I think Avangard thought you were talking about something else.

Hi all.

Great update Imre - thanx for your continued diligence in keeping us all updated.

This shot is fantastic.



What a great angle to see the tiers and setbacks up top.

It looks like the BMU on tier 24 terrace (the top of tier 23 larger wing) may already be getting ready for testing. It's lines are reaching down to tier 21 terrace.

Some great shots of podium zone B also. The shots from down on "the ground" really show the elevation changes in the landscaping on the podium.

OTR - it is great you keep an eye out for things happening. You have been the first to keep us informed on events happening on the tower many times now. I can only imagine what it would be like to live in the shadow of this thing. Keep up the good work bud.

As Charlotte posted I too am from a city where the tallest building is 12 stories high and no talk or indication of that changing anytime soon. The internet and all the photogs from the cities of the various projects I watch and collect pics/info from are what keep my interest peaking.

Great time to be a skyscraper lover.

Nice picture Bangkok but it took too long to render on this forum. Next time, create a link to the picture.

Excellent shots Imre, are you being really sneaky or did someone allow you on site? Looked like you were standing in the unfinished part of the lake.
