It's been a while since the "start" of the construction. How is it now?

Good to know that it's underway. I'll be back in the city in October, will check it out then.
What's the exact address of the building?

Looking at google earth it seems to be Charoen Nakhon Soi 15. An easy way to get a glimpse would be to take the skytrain to Sapan Taksin station - then it's visible across the river, or for an aerial view to go up in State Tower or Shangri-La hotel.

I have no idea of the construction status, so a construction update would be very welcome. Even if it's a few months away
