Painting

It looks like the concrete structure is complete now and some exterior painting is under way.

Topped

De Castle Royal has finally topped out (at the height of the abandoned Gold Tower 42).

Not quite topped out

This project is really slow compared to others… they have only constructed a couple new floors in the last year and the project hasn’t quite topped out (when it does it will be the same height as Gold Tower 42 currently is).

Almost topped

De Castle Royal has almost reached it’s maximum height which coincidentally is the same number of floors as Gold Tower 42 stalled right beside. Apparently the finishing date is set for March 2013.

Stuck or not

If any construction is happening on deCastle Royal, it has ground to a snail’s pace. Only time will tell before we see if this project joins the ranks of ‘stalled projects’ such as it’s big brother GT42 next door.

Working 20+

deCastle Royal gains ever more ground on Gold Tower 42. When finished, assuming Gold Tower 42 remains stalled, the towers will be about the same height. At the moment they are constructing above the 20th floor.
