That's correct, for both the central core and the floor plates.

It stopped at the clock part and no changes yet!
We still cannot till what will happen for sure.
I have a feeling that the clock is coming, maybe things not finalized yet!
AltinD, please let me get away with it this time!!

in my mind the preportions are wrong between base and middle of tower. Change in dimetions to get slimmer should have happened aboiut 20 floors up from where it does cos now it looks too thin at height.

What you see are just protective panels.

BTW, they were pouring concrete today on vertical pillars on the top; You can even see the caissons for them on Imre's latest pic. Nice to see they finally picking up work on the main structure after all this time (a few months)

Since June 7th when I posted the above, 2 new floors have been added to the structure. However the central core hasn't moved up a bit and they must do it if they're planning to continue constructing other floors.

The 3rd floor of the structure, since when they restared working on it in late May, is half or 2/3 done, however the central core has yet to jump another level.

Yes, it has grown! Around 270-275m, I suppose.

The shaft appears a bit thinner above the new setback instead of fatter, like on the render. Could this mean the end of the "Big-Ben-look-alike-design"? But if so, what's the purpose of the highly craning formwork right below then?

Btw. finally Al Rostamani Maze Tower in front looks topped out (210m).

No formwork, just a protective net.

Thanks for the pics Imre!

I suddenly get the feeling this will become a good looking 'Dubai style' skyscraper.
