What's the deal with the balloons? They almost look like height markers for unfinished or planned buildings, but there seems to be some inconsistency with the skyline (notably, Pentominium doesn't appear to be the tallest one). On the other hand... they seem to hover straight above all the construction sites, and the one above 106 tower seems to be at almost the exact altitude of its roof. Is it just a coincidental balloon festival, or are they actually markers?

They're not above the Marina, they're further inland/away .... and of course at a much higher altitude.

Aha. In a funny coincidence, the two balloons on either side of 23 Marina appear to be in the shade, while those above and further to the left have the setting sun still shining on them. It made it look like those two were behind/between the cluster of towers. But looking at it again, those balloons just appear to be darker than the others.

Still, that balloon at the top of the picture gives a remarkably good approximation of the final height of 106 tower.

Its taking the true form of a skyscraper now. I counted 14 floors. Probably around 75 meters tall already.

I remember when Marina 101 looked the way this does now.
Good to see this making steady progress.

The formwork on the perimeter wall jumped a few days back. The now reveled 13th floor has the walls also blackened out as the 10th.

And it limits the potential outer wall of windows. The building on the left has more options on this, so why build this way?

^ The building on the left have slabs that go all the way to the core, while here there are columns on the perimeter. Here the concrete is reinforced with rebar, there there is extensive use of high grade steel beams as reinforcement. Plus a higher grade concrete is used there.

So the outer walls are the support structure without relying on an inner core?

Both (central core and outer walls) are.
