that will be a really hard... asume BD will be only 800m that still is X-treme distance (even 4 spiderman I guess)

He did not reach top of Petronas Towers as far as I know, I'd like to se him on BD though.

Yes that's right.
In fact burj would be easier than a lot of others because of the setbacks. Now climbing al burj, that would be something

Good progress on the facade. On one side two floors partially with glass.

Imre, I see that Teddy 6 is back and you have a new friend for them all.
Thanks for the pics.

I wonder if the cladding will be almost finished when the structure is topped out

If you look carefully on the 3rd Imres picture from the end, you will notice that the most right part of the formwork is already on floor 135!! Thats 488 meters!!

Becouse there are still things to be constructed on the bottom part of the tower, plus you never start from the bottom, which is always the last place to be cladded.

Those pictures are spectacular Imre.

I was wondering what's going on with these little wings sticking out of the wall. Since the flat areas going up mean floors are still going to be attached to the core, are they stopping on this side? Maybe this was discussed before and I missed it. I also love how my photobucket account now reduces resolution for high res images.

I don't know if anyone has posted something like this map before but I thought that it would come in handy. Meby a stupid question but, where does the Burj Dubai stands on this map?



PS:Are the palms and the world fake on this one, and the city's?
