No, they are now working working on level 139 (floor 508, ceiling 512 meters). Floor 140 will be 512m and WORLD TALLEST BUILDING. But would not count as official until completed, so Taipei 101 will hold the record for at least 1 year and a half. Next core reconfiguration is level 148 (from the render on the first page). I think they would need some 4-5 days for 1 floor now.

I remain amazed that anyone thinks the numbers on the BD website are correct [the ones from Emaar] or others from diagrams over GPS readings from the site itself.

The workers are working on the world's highest floor right now...whether you wait until it is official or not, it's already the WTB.

The formwork is 2 floors above the setback, and the following picture taken today, leaves no doubts about it.

If the top mech floor before the setback is the 138th, then we are on the 140th ... but if that is the 139th, then we are on the 141st:

The cladding is over a year behind schedule. Anyone who says this building will be finished on schedule has spent too much time in the heat.

Thanks for the pictures AltinD. I especially love the full shots where you can see the whole building at once.

No more side wings to catch up with the core and just 16 more floors till the topping off of the concrete section (of course if plans have not changed)

Building the steel part on top will be actually slower.

There might even be a 6 months wait for the concrete to fully cure (There will be indeed a 6 months wait for installing some steel plates on the roof of the last floor build out of reinforced concrete, but I'm not sure if this means work on the entire top structure will be stalled).

Amazing pics AltinD! The tower sure looks tall, and the facade is just very perfect, can't wait to see more progress!

Mh, i thought they would just start building the steel section, but rise the concrete part serveral floors higher as where they anker the steel.
So it would have a really solid foundation on top as it's "melted" to the tower.

Im no structural engineer, but thats they way i'd intentually do it
