^ Actually Hollie Maea's answer is better than yours. The guy didn't ask how high the concrete structure is. He asked if that particular wing will be the last concrete wing. Hollie Maea explained that it would not.

Honestly 818 meters is good enough for me. I know there will be taller buildings in the future so it would be fun to see those grow. It's just cool that someone is finally building something that will break all height records.




Thanks.
We are getting too spoilt. Just 3, 4 years ago, an 800m building would be unimaginable. 500m was extremely impressive. Now we act like 800 is nothing.

mechanicals

It is good to see alot of mechanicals are going in on the lower floors. I just hope they either seal off the ends of those HVAC ducts until it is cladded, or that they fully clean out all of the ducts prior to turning the HVAC system on. With no cladding for such a long time I would imagine alot of sand had blown into those ducts. Armani will be pissed if all of his nice new hotel rooms are covered in sand every time the AC is turned on, lol

A couple of setbacks will be taken off of those wings before the steel begins. I hope that's clear.
Sadly I'm still confused. I was wondering if those were finished wings like MetalliTooL mentioned below. It just seemed too early to have that side set back so far at this point while you have a much thicker side that's coming up on the lower right part of the picture.

Yes, they are finished wings. The big nose cones on the other two wings will be disappearing a little bit higher. Actually the second wing already has reached the point of changing to the little wings, and the third wing (the one on the right side of that picture) will reach that point in just a few more floors.

If you look at the big render on the first page of this thread, you will see how it works.

Actually, a lot of the Hungarians do look a bit "asian". We are only 87% european. However, the difference is very slight, and you will have to look for them specifically.
