The hotel looks amazing and the top it's getting the form as the original design.

This building seems to have a "mohawk" haircut :P Really like the design though, one of my favourites

Is it just me, or is the top section taking forever to build? I don't check into this thread very often, and it looks like it hasn't risen very much since I last checked in a couple of weeks ago.

It has topped-out to roof, so the immense fin & spires to go as per renders.

So yeah, not much difference externally except a bit more cladding on the larger lower 1/2. I guess they've been concentrating on a lot of internal work & preparing structurally for the next step (the fin) in the last few weeks.

remember, this tower is 6 months AHEAD of schedule so they might slack off a bit since it's summer and now we have the holy month of ramadan (and so shorter work timings for laborers) coming up shortly

you think they may divert workers away from the hotel and put them to work cladding the burj?
