Which will be underground water from a series of wells and not water that penetrates the site side-ways from the Marina canal nearby.

It's round so far. The floors will slide around the circular core in due course.

No progress on the core (but its high enough for the coming time) and the podium is progressing very well!
Time for some twisting soon

I'd imagine the top of the core is just a sea of rebar! It's a shame the slipform structure is hiding it. Fantastic design and a tower I am actually looking forward to seeing in Dubai.

I would say top out in 2 years. One floor per week with a half year extra time.. So top out early 2011, sounds realistic.

I totally agree, marina block as whole will not be complete before 2011. but it will look amazing no doubt( except maybe for a traffic problem )
