Why wouldn't the ground floor be in the floor count?

Yeah, it's about time for a crane.
Though I think that it's more common to put the main tower cranes right down the trench, not track-bound aside.

This one is only temporary, the real crane(s) will be installed after they finish digging the hole.

They have plenty of time yet to decide on a spire here as it's not even out of the ground yet lol, but spire or no spire, this building will look incredible from just about everywhere in Dubai once completed! Can't wait to see it rise once it's above ground!

Must say, they've really done a fantastic job with the excavation here! Can't be easy trying to manoeuvre everything/everyone around such a small plot, so well done indeed!

PS: Bring on the spire PLEASE!!

For that to happen, the other spire on the wind city has to come back from the dead first.

I totally agree. But if they don't want to bring back the spire, then make the building itself 618 meters.

Now that's an even better idea!
