Thanks AltinD. I had figured it was work since he was taking the photo from a building under construction.

I hear that the summers in Dubai are hot and working on these buildings without air conditioners could be harsh! However, each level they build up it should be a little cooler right? Do you think that at 254m it is a couple of degrees cooler than than the ground floors?

This is one of those towers in Dubai that has become agonizing to watch rise ... it's like pulling teeth right now to get things properly back on track.

3/4 of 414 = 310.50 m ... the tower is around 260 meters tall at the moment or slightly above 3/5 of the total height.
