not completed, work has been going on even at night with lots of lights on withing the scaffolding around the spire.

Possibly topped out, I can't really tell.

Considering how long it took for The Torch, I would say a few more months at least.

Ironic or realistic? Maybe 23 Marina is a different case:

The Torch rarely had that pace in the late phase. So I wouldn't be surprise to see the spire unveilled around July.

Am I wrong or has the height of this building gone down 6 meters?
There has been nothing about that on this thread.
But I am sure it first was 395 meters.

There have been since the begining conflicting reports about height. Some said 389, others 395. Guess the CTBUH got the definitive answer from the developer .

Yes, you're right... few weeks ago, 23 Marina was listed with 395m here. Our Dubai section has it yet at 395m / 89 fl, so do skyscraperpage.com and emporis.com atm (the floorcount shifts between 89 and 90 on the web, too).
But CTBUH shows 389m / 90 floors, perhaps they got first-hand infos from Hircon, as Altin suggests.

That's a very impressive bit of scaffolding!

Why don't they choose to airlift the spire? It seems over-complicated erecting all that scaffolding for the spire?

In terms of speed it's much, much easier...

With the scaffolding method they must erect the scaffolding, construct and bring up the pieces of spire and then take down the scaffolding. Airlifting merely takes one or two workers harnessed around/onto the highest portion of the spire. A helicopter brings it up, they attach it and voila.

That's how they did the CN Tower and the spire is much larger on it.

So if you airlift the spire you don't have to construct it somewhere else, or those manhours don't count?

They used airlifting in CN Tower because that was the best solution at the time the tower was build, considering also the stand-alone location. Airlifting is dangerous, a pain in the neck as far as insurence is concerned and getting all the necessary permissions. A crane does the job easier, using scafolding even more so.

How often and when was the last time airlifting was used in construction of tall towers worldwide? Think about it.

has anybody seen the actual spire inside yet? I had a good view from SZR a few days ago when the sun was perfectly behind it, and I couldn't see it inside. so still preparing I guess.

The spire skeleton has been there for ages, just that isn't clad yet.
