Lots of men in blue overalls are at work on this. No wonder it is growing so fast. Seems no time since the plot was a muddy pool of water.

I think they may secure and complete podium to avoid any surprises before to return working fast again on the core

This is looking GREAT! Work is progressing so damn fast, incredible! However, I'm really curious how they are going on with the elevators against the core, no floorplate can be finished or am I wrong???

Thanks for the photo update today! Great!
Nice to see the main structure of the tower starts twisting (4 floors already).

DennisS: I think they can finish the floorplates, because the construction elevator is maybe at the location of the the elevator shaft.

Thanks Imre, good to see some pics again. Progress is huge, already working on the finishing of the podium which is unusual in Dubai but clever in my opinion.

The twisting is - and will be - great to see!

Thank you Imre and bb4life for the photo update! Awesome progress here.

The construction of the main structure is weird. 6 or 4....? Difficult to count the floors...But nicely twisting...So only the floors of the core can easily to count - level 14! Great!

And to remember that we thought it doom and gloom when the Marina wall caved in and the site was a swimming pool.
That seems a long time ago now, around February 2007 I think.

You can already see the twisting corners rising outside the core.
