Yes, most likely the upper podium level is already on the way. But also the core has changed: comparing the openings, there're two more than in October. So ignition is on and lift-off has begun, I suppose.

I know that pic was taken just 2 days ago but since then allot of changes have happen. Many of those tall steal beams have been added, one on the West corner goes even taller then the top of the central core.

absolutely. from what I've observed it's the most busy site in the marina right now (claiming the title from elite residence?). the reason why i say this is because there are so many workers on site everytime i look, but more importantly, they've worked like crazy even during the recent holidays where most other places took a breath.

The next set of embedded steel columns have been erected (around 3 storeys high).

About 40-50 people visible on the decks. Lots of activity in the core as well.

They are still setting up the first suspended floor ('recreation' according to the building section) which looks tricky with the curved profile, but that's not visible yet. This first floor will take a bit of time as it's their first shot.

Looking good!

With most of the other Dubai supertalls close to topping out, this is probably the only one in 2011 we'll get to watch rise in the next couple years (maybe Damac Heights too).

Parts of the first floor have been poured.

for some reason the slipform on the core on the right hand side has been taken down. You can just make it out in the photos above.

No one on-site today as it's a public holiday.

When is this project scheduled to finish, 2012?
I think if they keep good speed, they might require at least 2-3 years at best
