A lot of tension on the windows, that's a shame..

But the core is rising again, 17th floor in the formwork!

Yes, they look like funhouse mirrors.

I wonder if they removed the construction elevator that was against the core, or is it hidden within the floors now?

Also, it is interesting that they put this elevator so close to the edge of the building where the floors twist away, limiting how high the elevator can be installed:

The twist is looking so good now! Can't wait to see the twist once the tower hits level 40 or 50 ... that should be really something.

It's a 90° twist over 400m+, could be more compared with the Turning Torso, 190m. high and 90° twist too.

This is my favorite u/c building in Dubai but I don't think the cladding is coming up very good. Well, time will tell. Hope I'm wrong.

Cladding isn't finished yet on that particular part of the building They have placed the windows, but in between, there still needs to fit cladding (you can see the insulation).

I'm aware of that, Dequal, but I still think that perfectly retangular windows, like in the Torso, would have made it look better.

TT has regular windows, Infinity has floor-to-ceiling glass panels

Maybe they should call the building "The Twist".

I love the gray brushed aluminum quality of the cladding! This is by far my favorite building going up in Dubai. The full 90 degree twish will be so dramatic that this building will become in instant hit! If I had my way I'd live there
