true.

those progress shots are awesome, and it really seems like interior should be in full swing at the end of 2006.

Hi all. Woo Hoo ! Found the site that has those monthly progress pics ... You guys gotta check it out - interesting info from Arabtec, a contractor working on the tower. Info on tiers, usage, heights, etc.
3000 car parking... looks like 24 tiers

If this model is accurate the Building will be far more than 800 Meters. Look at how it compares to the Burj Lake Hotel. I can not believe my eye's.
