Absolutely crazy. That thing is huge.

Anyone know why they have such a clean injury report? And how they get those cranes off the top of the building when finished? And lastly, how they get the concrete panels to the top? Obviously it's too far down for the top cranes to reach to the floor?

www.burjdubaiskyscraper.com is back again, i'm very sorry for the long downtime, the host was attacked, and it took a lot of time to recover everything. Now it will be the same as before hopefully.

Great pictures Imre. Many thanks.

Does anyone know why the lower nose cones on all wings stay at level 19, while the nose-cones on the higher set-backs are normally build. Two of them have still some levels to go.

Thanks Imre for posting those big pictures for me
These big photos show more obviously how big this thing already is.

In this pic you can see the Burj Dubai Lake Hotel on the left:

BDLH has risen a lot in the past weeks (maybe 1 floor/week???)

Read my previous post #416 for a little explanation (maybe wrong!! ).

OMG 30% of it is already done.
I dont know why it looks so small when you compare this to bright start tower or some other 200m+, is it because it has such a huge base?
