This is a fabulous building. I couldn't believe it would go ahead when all of the problems hit Dubai. It's wonderful to be wrong and it's going to be so interesting to watch for the next couple of years. Thanks to all of the photo contributors and to Bramble for the insights.

Cutting them in half vertically into 2 T sections, because allegedly they are to heavy for the crane.

Agree... let's see if the core keeps on growing faster than the slab floors, like at Elite Residence for instance.

What is that angled concrete suspended in mid air doing? It looks like some kind of a buttress, but how can it be if it isn't anchored to anything?

I've wondered about that too. Very odd.

It certainly is odd. It appears to be some sort of reinforcement anchorage block. It looks like there is a series of transfer beams under the core where it cuts back. The ones behind the angled block are neatly tapered, so it is odd that they did something different at the end of the core, unless they needed to form a concrete truss under this section of core. The end of the core works hardest, so this might be why.

just a possibility. could be completely wrong. Bramble could know?

On some other photos it looks as though there is post-tensioning duct pockets at the base of the block. But all just guessing really without seeing any plans.

I think a detailed plan of the lobby/entrance area would explain what the chunk is all about
