Did you really need to quote the first post just to say that Indy?

The higher floors look absolutely tiny, in relation to the size of the crane. Though I have to reiterate again, its an absolutely beautiful design, whatever the builders' intentions of the building was to be.

I have a feeling that by the time they get up to the highest floors, the usable floor space will be a tiny fraction of the space at lvl 10 and below.

Anyways, I just noticed that the ICC actually has a more formidable outline (by means of its thickness through to the top) than even the Sears Tower!

That's amazing what's happening there in Dubaj. I hope Burj won't collapse, it seems to be too thin for me.
By the way I do really admire all the people working high there building this tower. I would fall down because of my acrophobia. It's crazy.

I think the above pic is the 1000+ metre render. Amazing pics Imre. Wish we had something 1/3rd that height atleast in Bucharest.

the 1000m render is also shown on the board with the current floor number. that's the reason why i think we'll see a 1km tall Burj Dubai
