That's a facade test...been there for months...in fact, it's the same cladding I referred to a month ago, when replying to you the last time you mentioned it

Level 42 is taller than the others... I reckon this belongs to the 2nd mechanical floors, so nothing should hold AARAAT from rising straight and quickly to the highest floor at around 250 meters .

According to the signboard, the floor design should change now, but I see no big difference at lev43-45 so far, especially as the square central column keeps going on. On the rendering, this suddenly appears to be round, the facade steps back and the x-bracings begin. So I wonder if there are once more some design updates...

Btw. two ground floors don't count in the numbering here, so this Al Attar Tower has 48 floors by now, with 28 more to come, I think.

Didn't you notice that today's pictures show brackets for the cladding? Usually that means "soon"....

Test cladding also means ,,soon" in most cases. The test cladding is placed for like half a year on the building, but nothing more is happening. That's why I am not so sure they are going to start it soon, hehe.

Is that a helipad on that building between Ahmed Abdul Rahim Al Attar Tower and Rose Rotana Hotel? If it is then I think it might be unusable now. What do you guys think?

Regards

It looks like a helipad. But maybe it is usable, I am not sure how the air is flowing there. I think I'll give it a try with my heli.
