I'm sure there must be a team of 50+ architects working on it.. as talented as Mr Smth is, i doubt he's doing the CAD plans and structural co-orindation.. I'll keep looking into it and see what i can find out.

are any of you guys on here architects in dubai?

fantastic building.. sweep stake on its height.. my suggestion would be 800m

If I enter the site and loose alot of time there, who'll take updates from the Dubai Marina then? The daylight doesn't last forever.

Looks like the center core moved up, but the wings didn't.
Time for, at least, one crane to move up again.
Still slow on the noses.
Lower 5 floors (levels -1 thru -4) already out of sight.

hhhhmmmm...........

good pics.
