Obviously they are focusing more attention on the podium.

What a goofy and tacky design. Reminds me of Atlantic City circa 1995.

This city is seriously amazing and the buildings are out of this world, so many supertall buildings in one place in rapid succession. New York has to watch out its got some serious competition.

i watch the empire state building every morning and it looks huge and knowing that the princesses' roof is going to be higher its just mind blowing and this is only one of so many supertalls, dubai is awesome. Great pics Imre.

Thanks for update, core on 19th! This is really getting some speed, if it will continue, it will be finished year before its neighbors.

you actually can but it involves a jumpform and a dedicated luffing jib crane as well as thickening the core to support its self. Typically only done to boost someone ego or to brand the core

rubbish. many bldgs have cores that race ahead. no real reason. sometimes just to complete core so that they can concentrate on floor plates. GPT in sydney had its core at full height-227m while floors were down at 10th.

Sweet Building to add to the stunning Marina Skyline. Should complement other supertalls quite elegantly. Love the top of the building - Very Artisitic Design

BTW does anyone know the width of the building or the height to base ratio? would quite thin like CS i imagine, looking at some of those renders

And here's a pic (© Richard Braddish ) showing the core towering over the floor plates. (nb Emporis is currently taking ages to load.)
