I don't find it at all fortress-like or intimidating. It's a stack of glass rectangles on concrete slabs, some of which cantilever.

It is very impressive, though. And it would make a great scene in a zombie apocalypse film, with the humans retreating from one platform up to the next higher one, with zombies right on their heels.

I have to say, from those last pictures it fits very well with 33 Thomas.

Wow, it will stick out for sure. Which is great because it appears to be exceeding even my wildest expectations. A wonderful addition for sure!

Right now this has to be the most interesting project to watch grow in the city along with Caltrava's Path station and the Pyramid.

Hey folks, it's a long time since I visited SSC. I had a ton of studying since next year I'm gonna start on a uni, but all went well and now I have a free summer. I've updated my diagram with the latest progress. i estimate the building to be currently about 134 meters or 440 feet tall

Roof height used below
