If the bottom half of the tower was 200m taller it would be like a bigger version of the Empire State Building. Someone should email the developer and suggest it.

Sry. But I can't see any similarities in comparison to the ESB.

The Dubai skyline looks cool at night, especially with low clouds hiding most of the ground from view!

One and half floor more than on the previous photos by Gabriel one week and half ago.

It definitely confirms the rate of 1 floor/week

Apart from that piling at Burj Vista seems to be finished but I start to wonder what they are doing at the Sky View plot.....

Either new site perimeter wall (it was already done for the previous cancelled project), or casting the piles located near to it.
