From two different angles

It has risen 2 floors since the last update, or 1 floor / week. It took way too long (by Dubai standarts) to reach to this stage so it's good seeing it raise this fast.

Yes, this tower is on Sheikh Zayed Road, or the main strip, as you call it.

BTW if you were actually refering to those five waterfront towers on the billboard, named Jumeirah Business Towers, those have nothing to do with this tower (is juat an advertising billboard) and their location is on Jumeirah Lake Towers project, which is just at the back of Dubai Marina, comprising of at least 79 towers around a man-made lake.

The tower seems to have grown by a floor or a little more over one week? I hope the trend continues!

Sure it does. Today morning (exactly one week later) it had grown by another floor.

I love it when you can see progress every single week

Thanks a lot for the update.

The construction is quite slow compared to Dubai standards, isn't it?

possibly because the Ground and M floors are a bit more difficult to build due to the unusual shape, once they reach the regular floors it should speed up.

Dubai has some nice projects, really. This is not one of them.
