You all are forgeting that 2 sets of 2 mechanical floors are not counted, and so are the G (ground) and M (Mezzanine) floors, plus the extra 3 - 4 floors on the core ahead.

All in all, the tower is some 44 - 45 levels above ground now.

Dubai is rising so fast that it will eventually look like it was something out off star wars!!!!! And this building only strengthens that idea.
This is a building aimed to steal the crown from Antwerpen ass the capital city in the world for diamond trade. I like that bold statement and it brings even more money into the emirate.

The role of the period and comma are reversed in many countries so in some countries one and a quarter would be 1,25 not 1.25 and one thousand would be 1.000 not 1,000

On the March 9th update, they had almost completed the 36th floor, while today the 43rd was half done, so 6 1/2 floors in just one month
