Man, can we make an exception and allow 1000 posts for Burj threads? It's going to literally be on the 30th+ thread by the time this tower is halfway complete

Many posts, many floors, many meters... one hell of a building.

Is it me, or does it seem too slender in the construction pics? I would assume they're going to widen it out at the bottom... right?

There will be a podium which will be HUGE. But generally speaking no, to the end of the nose cones is all you get.

It's not actually as slender as it looks, it's just there isn't much around to give it some scale right now. There are however some photos with workers around the tower which let you apprieciate just how gigantic it is.

Good to see the curved floor plates being unveiled and the nose ends coming up, they add substantial width to the building. Its starting to look huge!

Formwork to build floors. I suppose it's a protection to allow workers to work inside in various floors.
