Some merged snapshots by me from gerald's recent gigapan.org panorama, that he made on Palm Jumeira.
Finally topped out, the crown begins to fit to Ocean Height's breathtaking appearance!

The last one shows a very very interesting angle, but it would be fully enjoyed when everything is done.

Indeed! And a really nice progress although the concrete part is finished. When will it be officially completed?

In the middle left of this pic and here to the very right, there's a part of facade that apears "fake"... in other words: that lies outside the building atm. Is this just decoration or part of stoneless walls enclosing some facility space?

So what appeared to me like a black concrete cube is just a covering netting. The roof section to the "back side" will look much better without it in the end.

Amazing how nothing is happening at the back of the building, but from other 3 sides, totally different. Just a great design!

If you check the latest pics you will see that one outside elevator already removed at the back side and only one crane left.

Imre i think he is talking about the design, not construction itself.
And right, from one side you can't see the curve.
