The small diggers in the hole are transporting all the sand to that corner, so that the big digger at the edge can get all the sand out. So it's not a ramp but just a pile of sand.

In Dubai supertalls do not impress you, you impress supertalls.

(Seriously, with that nations' number of Supertalls, about this time they become unremarkable. I tried a 'soviet russia' joke with obvious change.. I don't think it worked.)

Judging from those pics, everything appears to be moving along quite nicely.

So, did they decrease the footage of each floor slightly, or did they increase the height of the building slightly? If the extra floors won't fit in the basement, then they have to squeeze in somewhere.
