Be patient, I´m pretty sure that in 2011 the construction pace will be much faster than now. By this moment, we need to wait to see the first complete stories, not only the core section, after that, the progress will be faster by sure. Anyway, anything seems to be slow in comparison to Shanghai tower

Really like these night shots. Nice atmosphere. It will be great once the podium is finished and the momentum picks up here for sure.

Momentum is certainly up. First day back after Eid and a big number of workers visible (say 50+) on the deck. They poured a floor just before the Eid break and are setting up the next one.

There are currently now 4 floors above ground.

Given the full section that was posted earlier in this thread (not sure of authenticity), we might start to see the typical residential floor come up now.

Provided they don't change the plan of one tennant/floor, the car park should be big enough

Podium is up to and including level 4. Floors thereafter are regularised up to level 47..then the 'pods' start! There is a car lift which will help with parking space.
Progress is fine.

"Pods" huh.. I was wondering what those were going to be called. Thanks for the insights!

You mean a lift within the parking levels (being below or above ground) that eleminates the need for ramps, not one that sends the cars up on the pod levels, right?

There are ramps serving the basement car parks (on 6 levels) and a car lift serving the car parks above ground level up to and including level 2
