Nice to see some work on the crown. I wish it wasn't taking so long. I hope this one is topped out by the end of the year. But I have my doubts.

And now is completely gone (the crane), but the auxiliary one is still there. Probably it would be used also to lift the roof section elements.

And one of the rare images where the camera isn't pointed skywards but actually shows ground level in that area...
Tallest block looks impressive from a distance but I'm very curiouse how that area is gona be pedestrianwise.

More like 6 months. The Landmark in Abu Dhabi is the only one taller than Q1 that has topped out so far. I imagine 23 Marina will be topping out any day now also.

There's a sort of tripod on top of The Torch now - I believe this belongs to the spire!
And the loose steelframe parts with varying height around, plus the newer inclined ones?
They could be first details of the spiral upper roof, that will hopefully follow soon.

Nice to see works proceeding on the crown. I was hoping this would top out sooner, but it's still got a chance to do so by the end of the year.
