The tower looks amazing, but they have a lot of work to do. The facade of the tower looks nice also.

Thank you Imre for all your updates of Dubai constructions
The Index is so massive... it's impressive!
And the glass looks similar to the glass of a building in my city, IMO:

Nothing special with that crane

BTW finally they jumped on the 36th floor. It took them 2.5 weeks to complete the 35th. WTF

It is also one of the few skyscrapers with a lot of empty concrete facade that actually looks pretty good. Its a big step from the boxes of the 60s and 70s. It blows buildings like the McNamara Building in Detroit out of the water. Box buildings arn't dead yet.
