No money for the glass?? Or is this development independent from Naheel?

Certainly not Nakheel. If it was it surely wouldn't be rising at more than one floor a week.
The glass will come eventually, it's just a bit abnormal for the tower to be 40 floors high and still nothing.

Maybe all manpower resources are spent to build the concrete shell first asap. That could be the reason why Marina 101 is still the fastest growing tower around. I still wonder about the pre-cladding: will they someday start with the facade up at lv27?

Looks more like 180m, with core (here invsible, but always 2-3 further) at about lv50, I'd say.

Wow!

The pace is really quite amazing, IMHO.

Though there is no cladding yet, it's not like we haven't seen the same elsewhere.

At seven floors a month it could top out in summer.

This one is so fast it may overtake 23 Marina and Princess Tower. I think The Torch will probably just beat it to top out.
