So they build 2 floors of the core at once?

Great updates! Why some residential towers nearby this tower construction stopped or slowed down? I thought Dubai continue growing despite global economy?

Dubai was hit hard from the crisis, though many many projects did continue.

True! True!
I Just would like to know the reasons behind picking the tallest residential building and then spending that much money to live on the 5th floor for example.

I lived on the 26th floor of a hotel in Shanghai. It takes ages until you get an elevator. And on the way down it stopped a lot of times.

I think people in the tower will have a bar, gym, garden very high up. If you live on the 5th floor and want a great view just go up.

You live in a hotel?
Anyway, you could spend less and get buy a place on the 30th floor next door, and then buy the membership to the gym (unless the gym in your place is higher...)

so, other than price and elevator waits, what would be their motives?

"World's tallest residential tower". Fine, but how the f**k are they going to power this thing up? Solar energy? Wind energy? Nope, once again yet another energy sucking tower is being built in Dubai. When will these people start considering using the ridicilous amounts of sun that this land is blessed with?

When people are kids they believe in everything ... then they grow up to the reality of life, learning fairytales don't exist and things aren't just black or white.

.... to answer your question: When you and your bright collegues build the cheap and eficent (solar) panel and that doesn't need to be cleaned every few hours.
