Those photos clearly show how large this construction site is. I don't think I've ever seen so many cranes all on the same site. As for the construction speed, this elevator test tower that was recently built in Germany rose 3.6 meters per day, so I think a 3 meter speed per day is definitely realistic (even though this tower might be 5x as high as the elevator test tower, which is 244 meters high). On a similar note, is there any information on what elevators will be used in the Dubai Creek Harbour Tower and how many there will be?

Thanks for the nice vid! A good visualization showing how different the weather in Germany is compared to KSA / Middle East btw.
