Here comes the cone on top, doesn't it? I'm surprised that it's basically made of concrete, not of metal/glass only. And I wonder if the cone will get the spiral shaped cladding as on the renders: so far there are just horizontal levels.

Well the cone is quite big so a few floors is not strange. But I can understand why you're surprised. It's constructed out of concrete because thát's the thing the workers are able to do, it's just the easiest way for them, so that's why I think.

All the roof structures I've seen so far have been made out of steel.

Very close until T/O. This has been an exciting project. Once the crown is complete, the torch can be lit.

This was supposed to go in front but it was put on hold or maybe cancelled. Off plan is dead in Dubai now so not much chance this going ahead for the next 2 or 3 years at least before construction starts.

Otherwise they may just landscape it eventually or put some villas, shops and recreation in front.
