Actually, it's not that much of a "faux pas", give it about 3 years and Al Burj will be in that vista too!

The concrete reinforcement around the mid-level plant floors when seen in close-up is quite massive, and looks to have the thickness and strength of a bunker. This building has been designed and constructed for the long-term.

Not only in Dubai! Isn't the Index the widest (fattest) 300+ building in the world?

One more floor in only 6 days... that's a good progress!
With this speed of construction, the Index might top out this summer.

With more and more levels, the Index reminds me of a spreadsheet now, so the name matches well (okay, the tower is labelled after the commerce term of course). A lone index finger sticking out of the ground would also be a nice association, but therefor the building is too square and broad...
