I'm wondering why they haven't dismantle the concrete pump yet. Maybe they are, or will be, pumping concrete to seal off the shaft of the core.

Hey Altin, you did it... you've posted pictures of a Marina scraper.
Great that there are many good photographers there on SSC now.

LOL, 2005 - 2006 all over again, or what ...

Actually, 2 weeks ago I took pictures of the tallest block from the crescent of The Palm Jumeirah, both by day and night, but didn't posted them

Though Imre took and posted that day pictures taken from almost the same spot.

Concrete pumps still there. They are pumping more concrete?

BTW, the shots are fantastic!

AFAIK some parts of the crown will be habitable/usable, so i suppose that they might need the concrete pumps to pour walls whatever within the crown.

the two round floors we currently see are supposed to be 96th Luxury Penthouse, and 97 Playing Floor.

On Altin's last full size image we can see the same aluminum panels on the floor they used on the regular floors where they poured concrete.
