It looks like the frame of one of the diamonds is done.

I also like the Jumeirah/Marina skyline in the background. It's a bit like there are two seperate cities.

I think Dubai became a huge city with 50 km long landscape, a concept of one city one state.
Maybe its not a bad idea to divide it down to few cities which can improve some infrastructures and better distribution for over all services. Let me suggest marina city, jebel Ali city, sport city, Jumairah city, Dubai city, and probably Northern Dubai beyond the creek.

Cladding has partially reached top floor. Nice that the octaeder feature is getting built on top, though it's more or less hidden when seen from right below. The spires itself look okay to me - yet clearly visible in the sunlight, but far away from cheating oversize.

Welcome, "diamonds". They make the crown more impressive (though I'm not sure if the roof elements work together in the end), while the spires appear smaller above.

Nice progress on the roof feature, thanks to 234sale for taking the pictures and kanye for posting them. Soon Dubai will have another two finished supertalls.

You know I feel really sorry for the cancelled twin towers cross the street "bin manana towers"which where suppose to be 450+ m. You would imagine the stunning view of 2 super tall set of twin towers on both sides of SZR.......very sad really!

The cladding looks really good. Definitely among the best towers in Dubai.

We used to call that feature around the lower part of the spire "diamonds"... when the metal grid is clad in light color (whatever material it will be), each of them might look a bit like a gemstone from far.
