I like how they are covering the concrete.

It would be be great to have an open balcony
almost 300m above the ground.

Are the balconies open?

It has been on level 65 since last week, and within a couple of days should rise on the 66th.

Exciting building, very interesting proportions. Not one of Norman Fosters best though? A bit cluncky and unrefined don't you think?

Aaa The Index one of my top three best buildings in Dubai. Very unique and elegant design, from one side it looks so massiv so big like a huge monumet, and from other side it's slim and light. Amazing structure.

The central 2 "cores" are up on the 66th already. The two side "columns" should follow in a couple of days.
