I see they're finally on the 4th row of glass... wow, do they need to do a lot of catching up - they're going to need 100s of people working on glass installation alone.

Also I found a excellent video quality 350mb torrent of the German "mega builders" Discovery documentary filmed back last year when it was around 70 storeys tall. It was interesting to see lots of different shots but f****** annoying trying to hear the English underneath the German over-dub, agh!!! They showed them having problems building some brick wall, testing the original glazing, and lots of other things as far as I could understand.
If anyone has the English one please look into putting up a torrent of it - would be very nice to know what the people are talking about.
I don't suppose you have a link to the German version? I've been looking
forward to seeing that for ages! I keep missing it on TV, I'm never at home!

Not all the lifts will be double decker, and certanly not those going on top of the tower.

I think you are confusing Culwulla's mentioning of the CURRENT height of the tower, with the completed MAX height.

The core looks thin becouse is very high up there and the wings haven't cought up.

It is NOT thinner then what it was 100 floors down, well at least 2 out of 3 sides.

I got 648 for that new render. I might have done something wrong.

on most of renders the first 12 tiers are the same, so its easy to scale, you can see the 508m high tier facing this way. so i scale that then the top. Ive scaled that 648m version and its works out to be 765m.
also i think that one to the right is 808m vers. getting close
try, enlarge the smaller version to same scale as 808m version. get the tier12 equal and you will see. you do know which one tier12 is? is the largest one with mech floors banding.

The Burj Dubai looks so nice from every angle. I like the picture with fountain and Burj Dubai as a background.

I lined up the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th, and 8th tiers. As you can see, the two renders are from opposite sides, and only two wings are visible in the new render. Check it out, it should be scaled about right. Also, if the right render is indeed 808 meters, then the render on the left must be even shorter. I thought I remembered reading that that image was of the 818 meter version, but I don't remember where.

Whatever, I guess none of this matters. If I scaled it right, then they're just screwing with us, because we know it'll be at least 700 meters. If you're right, Cul, then... Who knows.

To me, it looks like they're from the same side.
