the first break up is at 43. the breakups only happen on one side (i.e. facing 23 marina).

So they'll use it for 25 - 26 floors and then dismantle it ... but why not do it on the other side that would be straight up?

Perhaps they will eventually do it on that side too, but started first on the other side because 23 Marina is really close.

i think you're talking about the column forms? they seem to be jumping the mega columns on the marina 23 side. don't know why.

Its not a villa but I think same rule.

Dubai Municipality clarifies the One Villa, One Family concept

Speaking about the One Villa, One Family rule, a top civil official in Dubai, yesterday, clarified that there is No such rule in Dubai, and it is just that the campaign against overcrowded villas is being misunderstood.

I don't think I'd sit on a top level toilet in a storm.

It can be seen here that the formwork is indeed just for the load bearing columns (as mentioned earlier), and not the floorplate as I thought. You can also see that the terraces levels will not interfere.

This is going to be one hell of a thin tower given the height! Excited to see the continuously quick progress continue.

The columns are just incredibly thick. They must be using amazing amounts of concrete.

Concrete is very high grade (dense), maybe as dense or perhaps even more then the one used in Burj Khalifa, however more interesting is the amount and type of steel used to reinforce it.

Today the central core jumped two more levels and now the 24th and 25th are visible. The top of the formwork is now on the 27th level.
