seems the core has gone up to fl106 or 430m. still long way to go
@ 430m high, ICC is now 5th tallest in world or 9th include spires.

I'm not saying this as a bad thing because I think Dubai is awesome but I see it as more of an "adult disneyland" or a "playground for the rich". It is a very fake place but that fakeness works on a lot of levels.

I would say your diagram lacks accuracy as if you look at the cranes in the photos, the angle with which they point is much 'steeper' than the angle that the cranes in your diagram point. I expect this detail to be ironed out in your next update.

thx
