The core has grown a lot... from far this still looks like concrete formwork, not like steel beams for the top.

Yes, core is up in the future pyramidal top now, I suppose. There must be seperate floors on smaller footprints, otherwise the tower can't have 72 stories. I wonder if this is rental space near the top, too.

With those window openings, the top doesn't look like the core in the lower parts: Al Yaquob on 22/June/2007 by Imre for comparison. The recent top is a bit wider, but there's not enough space for rental floors. So I think this is part of the crown, that is accessible by stairs. Maybe more elements will be added for decoration to give the crown a pyramidal shape like on the renders.

That cubic part on top has grown, making Al Yaquob Tower around 300m.
I wonder if some inclined walls will be added later there, or if this is part of a redesigned top!?

The original design had a pyramid shape feature on top. I think it will still be a part of it after the end of construction.

Another change compared to December: the crane with the horizontal boom has gone. So only one crane is left to complete the crown and the facade.
