Ive stayed at the Burj al Arab and the views from there were pretty impressive and hard to beat. Looking out over The Palm Jumeriah is a nice view don't u think...Then on the other side I'm sure you'll be able to see The World once done

That model looks better than the earlier renders, it also looks like it has around 64 levels?

Ah i love this sea of cranes

and look at the other cores, i think they are for the 6-7 storey basement of the tower, which is likely to have more than one elevator shaft.

The most important thing, is that now I know where to spot the structure so it will be easier to take updates in the future.

Considering how huge the podium is, the approximity of the three cores to each other and the simultanious progress, the two on the side should be the levator shafts serving the podium floors, while the big central one serves the main building till the top.
