Now that this tower is almost finished, what is your favorite thing about it?

I find it odd that for so many months EarthCam was only updating once a day (around noon). And now, when the tower is almost complete (externally) and there is little change to see, the cam has started updating throughout the day and night.

Sorry if this has already been asked, but when is the cladding on this building expected to be complete?

It was just mentioned at the top of the page that it is gearing up to receive a temporary certificate of occupancy in late 2013. It'll probably open in full in 2014.

Anything going on here? Seems they haven't done much on the outside lately. We're so close to finishing the glass to the top this is such a tease!

They probably have to finish off some work on the mechanical floors before they do the last floors. Since the last office floor's glass must be lowered from the mech floors above, they probably need to finish some miscellaneous item before they install its glass.

Just a guess mind you. But things always slow down when you get near a mechanical floor(s).

They just started the cladding on the northern side in the gap where the external hoist used to be..

They had the window washing rig out this morning on the east side of the tower, according to the Earthcam. Unfortunately I didn't get a screenshot.

The way it catches sunlight during dawn/dusk. The way it becomes ghostly under blue skies. It's a giant man-made chameleon.

Good to see some progress with cladding taking place. Hopefully it will not take too long

Well, they can do mutiple levels a day. I expect this part to be fast. And when it's done, I want to see a zoomed pic from the ESB.
