This site has been empty for far too long, so it's great to see this happening. There'll be plenty of photos as it rises, but enough to rival the 103 thread... and are there going to be enough bananas?

I noticed that early on their webcam, I thought my eyes were deceiving me at first but it is definitely up a level. Can't wait to see this baby grow.

Yes the slip-form is currently being assembled and i would expect it to be fully assembled by early next week.

The core should then start to rise!

Mmmmmmmmmm I'd have to disagree, whilst The Mercian is a great tower/building, it's not the most exciting imo.

Height is great though

Was wondering would they be doing the steel works as the core goes up?
