Wow

It's actually looking like a skyscraper now. How long before it becomes the tallest in Dubai?

Also, when does the cladding/facade start going on? SWFC's facade is growing pretty quickly. I vaguely recall something about the heat being one of the reasons for not putting the facade up just yet.
