It's progressing. I saw one picture by IndiansUnite that showed it about a quarter of the way across.

No, when the facade is up the outer structure is almost ready. But then they still have to do a lot inside the tower.

I don't know why nobody likes this beautiful building. It has a gorgeous mirror of a facade and is incredibly elegant. Hmm does this remind anyone else of 2 certain buildings in Columbus circle? alslo can somebody please explain to me why the chose to put 3 towers in a complete line?

i just noticed that one side of the parapet is staggered a few meters. Is that intentional? I hadn't noticed anything like that on any of the renderings.

edit: and by "intentional" I meant "is that the way it's going to be when it's done"
