    I've been patiently watching this rise since I watched them erect the first crane back in November. Since then, the core has shot up, working around the clock going at least two floors a week.

    It's now more or less topped out; the core currently sits on 34, with it's final height being 36storeys, the last two floors being a rooftop garden.

    I first came to do this during the week, but as I previously said, they currently work around the clock, so it was a no-go. So after meeting up with Ratfink and AndrewB last night, we realised no one was in, and the crane hatch was unlocked :D
    We were actually only going to take the core, but they haven't completed any of the stairways yet, and you can only get about two/thirds of the way up.. So we took the crane, with Andrew waiting at the bottom.

    This was a long one, but I'd been looking forward to doing it. The views certainly didn't dissapoint.








    Thanks for looking.
