LED strips ... nice (if "applied" intelligently)

From Article MEP with a twist by Gerhard Hope on constructionweekonline.com about Infinity Tower and Ocean Heights ("Minor twist") from 18/October/2009:

"Ocean Heights is due for completion by late summer of 2010. However, structural completion is expected during the autumn of this year." (DAMAC Properties GM Ziad El Chaar).

El Chaar also tells:
- 1800 workers on-site
- close to completing 70 floors
- electrical wiring and cabling at level 60
- interior plastering and painting at level 55
- glass cladding at level 54

The diagonal setback at lv74 (if I've counted correctly) is clearly visable for a while now. And from this angle we can see how far up the tower is: 4 more levels on slab plus 3 more on core, so that lv81 should be arising already.

If level = floor, one more floor should come.
But I remember that the numbering-signs once marked the lowest appartment floor as no. 5, although base+transition below appear as 5 floors, therefore level = floor+1. If so, this would already be the top floor, and Ocean Heights maybe promoted to supertall.

I am sorry for very off topic question, but what is the purpose of spending holiday in Dubai? Mediterranean countries have own well known traditional attractions, however Dubai brings the crude oil to my mind only. OK, the weather is perfect (maybe even too hot), there is a sea and we could see beaches on Imre's pictures above. However these beaches are very different to Maledives or Fiji. Ocean in front ans impressive towers behind, that's unique for sure. What else? I am considering to visit this place and the main purpose for me would be all these amazing constructions, however my wife would disagree, so give me the argument please

Just a choice really.

Dubai still IS under construction. As of now the tourist attractions are the water parks, Ski Dubai, Horse Racing (if thats your thing), etc.

DubaiLand, what is to be Dubai's main attraction isn't complete yet. And it's likely it wont be for a while.

Hell, I'd vacation in Dubai just to see the city alone...
Nice pictures, Imre... the ones up close really give this tower a very monolithic image.

They have started dismantling the formwork and that can be seen a little also on the last picture posted.
