It would be very bad for the basement if they left the water down there.

Does the Torch already have a public observation deck?! WTF?
Don't think so... and btw. these two quoted pics have been taken from Al Marsa Tower aka Emirates Marina Serviced Apartments, not the Torch.

The number of men in blue on the top floor is amazing... Infinity Tower construction is on good speed

Great I think they can recover part of the year lost time from flood and the podium will be ready before T/O.

I think the walls will receive some cladding plates, too, so it's hard to make up your mind from these 2 pictures.

Never thought my favorite skyscraper U/C would be one in the ever-so-tacky Dubai. And such an amazing location!

If construction slows down in summer, how many floors per week will be built during the summer?
