Nice to see the cladding on the steel floors at the top, but the activity still going at the bottom of the tower, wouldn't they cause disfomfort for the habitants at the lower floors with noise and stuff?

yes people are able to move into hotels already, even though the project is still U/C at the lower floors mostly.

nah, the first 15 floors are parking, and above that is hotel. No condo tenents have moved in yet, and the hotel guests know its still under construction when they book, so they really cant complain.

Oh well, it's a modern building with a good isolation, so I don't think there will be a lot of noise in the building itselfs.

Some nice skyline pics from Flickr by ryankraklau, arlangemach and adamrjordan.
You can easily recognise the impact of the Trump Tower on the skyline.

THIS is what Dubai should strive for. Love the colour of the glass in that last picture. Setbacks have really worked out well.
