The glass panels on the windows, have reached the top most floor, the cladding panels on the walls, are way behind

Still no sign of work on the roof feature commencing

I would prefer this building without it's crown personally. It doesn't seem to fit the building to my eyes.

I like this building perfectly the way it is but I don't know if you're able to go to up to the crown

I don't believe the crown will be accessible since it will be made out of steel and glass, and will be open. I don't think the roof will be accessible as a whole. Maybe only to window cleaners and maybe some who have permission to go up there like the user Desert Driver.

Haha, I know that Altin, but it was clear that Puppet General didn't so I told him that it's off limits.

Only in Dubai can you have a building 400+ meters tall, and have most of it hidden from view. Still no crown progress, but I did find some recent photos. I have one question, what are the dimensions of the foot print for this building?

That last picture encapsulates dubai for me.
On one side you have the amazing but badly finished off twisting tower.
On the other the ridiculous looking rocket masquerading as a building, some buildings in between which are nice enough. some which aren't, with the never to be finished stump of the pentominium poking it's head in.

Anyone know what the roof height of this thing is? According to the SSP diagrams it should be around 380m.
