It's the maze of reinforcement and then the concrete to raft that is worth looking forward to, when the 'spiders' appear en masse to create the raft in one continuous pour.

Here's Ocean Heights, November 07, to give an indication of what is hopefully to come...

...from this to... spiders 1 and spiders 2

Speaking of which, when is this tower predicted to rise above the ground?

It's strange how in this particular plot the soil seams like regular dirt that is found elsewhere and not sand like in almost every construction site in Dubai, including the neighboring towers.

I know how a 'wet and compact' sand looks like in here.

Sorry about that, seems still lack of language skills. I confused dirt with gravel. But anyway, I also thing it could be becouse of water. Earlier wathing this thread i also was wondering why some of fresh uncovered soil is so dark. But after some time left it become light as everything else, so i thing its reasonable to say its becouse soil is wet.

It is not correct because it does not include the top spires.
