The 37th floor has been completed and it took 1 week to do so, so we are back on track.

And for the record, why the progress of The Index should be related to that of Burj Dubai in any way? Neither the developers nor the contractors or the locations are the same.

My guess is the delay was Probably to pour that giant concrete connection truss, between the outer walls.

And i'm not sure, but i think the Green hole is for the Index's little brother, or to put it another way a shorter twin, but i'm not sure.

index doesn't have a twin. Those are a pair of 49 and 50 story towers, part of DIFC. Also, the pics are indeed taken from the Rose.

So you're saying the excavation just to the right of the Index will be a pair of 49 and 50 story towers?
