several months ago and many thought that this project was a cruel joke, to be 'announced' over and over again.

Glad to see it REALLY rising now!

There's no way there are 11. That's just the scaffolding.

There should be about 5 or 6.

they are erecting a very huge tower crane in the middle of the core area. This gonna 2b one of the biggest tower crane in the world! I wonder Burj tower will also do the similar feat, proclaiming the title with biggest tower crane ever erected. They loves superlatives, isn't it?
