Are there any photos showing workers in the tower working? There are no photos in any past 9 threads showing this, except the openning ceremony.

The photos are mostly taken on Friday which is a rest day in Islamic countries, as apposed to Sunday in Christian Countries.

Does anybody have a pic of the structure with numerous workers, on it and around it, to give it the proper scale? Also, it should be getting tall enough for maintenance floor(s) pretty soon.

The thing still looks too skinny (and 1 less tower on each side) to me.

I already said look a few posts back. Why do you need to see 200 workers to get a sense of scale? 2 workers is enough. There is one less tower on each side. This will rise later because doka aren't building that, it's not part of the concrete structure.
height to width ratio will be around 9:1. I think that's good for a tower of this height. Any wider and it would wreck the skyline

What side is considered the front? How can we tell when future pics are posted?
Are there 3 unique sides, or are they all identical?

Somebody post pics of numerous workers in and around the structure, so we can see this building come alive like an ants nest. Full of activity. Every pic I see, the building looks dead, or asleep.

I found a new pic of the building complete. Somebody post it in this thread for our reference:

http://www.uaebs.com/UAE_DUBAI_IMG/B...Dubai_UAE2.jpg

The guy in the pic, above this reply, is in a bucket lift on the side of the structure going up the white scaffold. I am assuming the lift will go up the enire height as far as the concrete will go. WHO WOULD PAY TO GO UP THAT WHEN IT GETS TO 500 meters?

1st this is not new

2nd go there and take the picture for yourself, this site is 1km x 1km and consists of the world's largest mall, some 30 highrises, an artificial lake, an old town etc.
it is not that easy to take photos.

3rd the sides are identical.

4th malec in your second picture the worker is too tall, check it again he is way smaller in the first one.

Darth Shemp, the three sides will be identical. Of course then, there is no front because of this. Aswell, the dubai forumers here that take pics all are very busy with their jobs so they have to take these pics when they've time off. That's when the workers have their day off too so that's why you never see lots of workers there. There was one pic taken where there was actually about 100 buses waiting to take the workers away, can't remember where it is
