I'm glad they are still finishing the top. I now like this tower mare as the MCT.

They are probably using the BMUs to install the remaining panels, I guess.

That's mine guess too There is no way a worker could install it at this height without any crane. Would be interesting to see a pictures or two showing the process

The prove that a few panels can make a tower from bad to perfect.

The top part is meant to have a digital display board / pixelated neon sign that says "Cayan Developers Infinity Tower" or something, I think. The text is supposed to rotate around the billboard as well. Will look pretty kitsch if that's what the cap the tower with!

What's taking them so long to put the other panels on? Geez, this tower shot up in the typically fast Dubai pace and now since summer last year, the crown has a construction speed like 1WTC anno 2007.

They have been working on the crown since July 2011 - a whopping 21 months. Does anyone have a timeline of various milestones for this building? Things like when prep started, pit was fully excavated, great flood occurred, building reached grade, core or floors reached 10 stories...20 stories, etc., etc.

Those cheap looking cables on top are really ruining the beauty of this tower.
