That would mean SWFC will still have the world highest obs deck, even if Burj Alam height is increased


SAdly, I really hope another deck will be made for BD at the steel section

Those sites we see activity on, are they mostly soil test or are they u/c?

This will be one of those pictures it'll be funny to look back on in two years I think =). That stretch of desert behind it must be extremely valuable in 5 years or so...

Most sites are U/C with either excavations, piling, ground improvements, dewatering, shoring underway.

I think he's aware of that ZZ-II I'm assuming he meant the design to the tip of the roof from the generated image doesn't look like there's room enough for a helicopter to land without a helipdad or sufficient landing space.
