Cool pic, if you compare the buildings with the cars they are massive:0

OT: That circle of rubble in the bottom middle doesn't look like it's supposed to be that way. What's the plan there?

They removed the landscaping and parts of the mall structure to make space for the Dubai Mall extension.

I doubt that, but it still rises fast enough.

Maybe nearly one floor in two weeks.

Which forum was that?
I'm not sure what their jump intervals are, but
if they were working round the clock, on the straight aways,
with sufficient resources, and no hiccups,
a system like this could probably be jumped twice a week,
if push came to shove.

Yes, two floors per week is possible, but one a week is great too ....... and it should be the norm

One floor a week is quite respectable, and a lot safer and more comfortable for everybody. The jump form is quick, the slabs are what take the longest. No point in letting them fall far behind while the jump form sprints to the top.

Nice composition, too bad about the backlighting obscuring the foreground.
How about Photoshopping a bit?

Photoshop wouldn't make much of a difference

Renders can be placed at the beginning of Lent. It is strange that there were so few ...

That's amazing

This angle (from the bridge to the Dubai Mall) is probably the best to check the progress on this one. Thank you very much!!

According to the renders, it seems that after the floor currently being built (The 12th if I'm not wrong), we will have an atrium of maybe some technical floors. So maybe they will take a little bit longer to build. Then we will start again for many regular floors.
