Not yet. The East wing was on the 72nd till yesterday so unless it also jumps on the 73rd and a few days are passed, none of the other sections would jump on the 74th.

On Sunday (May 11th) it jumped up on the next level, however the completed floor was not labelled. Maybe the special mechanical levels (like the 28A, 29A & 30A) were reached.

I also think it is wrong, while there might be 78 or 80 labeled floors + G + M, we have to keep in account that there are 3 more mechanical floors (28A, 29A & 30A) already build in the middle of the structure and a few more yet to be build, so to me the 86 figure sounds more correct then 80.

After all, it's the number of levels that count and not that of habitable floors.

Anyone know if the office space will be rented out prior to completion of the Residential section? In a phased sequence so as to recoup some of the building costs inorder to complete the project. Just thinking this as the cladding on the office section looks almost complete and they havn't even started the cladding of the residential.

No, according to Dubai regulations a building must pass all the checking and receive all the neccessary certifications before anyone is allowed in, and these checking cannot be done before the tower is completed.

Certanly not plastic, looks more like some sort of stone.
