Is the official height still kept secret? Because friends of mine have been doing interviews at a company called Besix for a university groupwork (about human resources, nothing to do with skyscrapers) and one of the managers said "Besix is involved in the construction of a 808m high building in Dubai"

So might this be a hint?

From what we have seen, the construction goes in cycles.

First they concentrate on the central core and it shoots up, then they slow down there and the three wings speeds up construction, with the cycle repeating itself, when the wings approach to 3 - 5 floors below the top of the central core.
