A reflection? Why is there 0 reflection on other panels and why does the black thing spill over the white metal part? It looks like something has been taped there.

Any idea how many times will BD appear in the Guinness World Record Book?


So far I only see it breaking others record 7 times


World tallest from base to highest inhabitable floor
World tallest from base to roof
World tallest official structural height
World tallest from base to highest point/pinnacle
World largest number of floors in a building
World longest lift shaft in a structure
World fastest service elevator


Not sure is it even correct... Lol

Great update Imre! There is certainly a lot more glass being added to the facade.

Now that about 13 floors are clad, it's easier to get an overall feel for the finished 'product'.

Thanks always Imre.

Great pics Imre! Second core setback occured as predicted, level 148 on top. I guess that another crane is going to be dismantled in the following days. 14th row of cladding started, nice progress on the podium cladding also Looks like cladding above the 2nd mechanical floors is to start soon, at the first floor above the mechanicals cladding mountings are already there. And rails for the cladding lifts are also up The lower 2 wing cones on the pic must be very near completion and the higher 2 wing cones are already above the mechanical floors and rising fast

So they are Like towards the base, we'll see another section's cladding start to go up. Such a massive job, no wonder the cladding is picking up speed.

Hi everyone, I'm new here, but I'm watching this forum for more than a year now.

Nice update, Imre.
I'm only afraid that we won't see the Burj anymore when the cladding is totally finished. It reflexes the same color as the sky.

(if I write some errors, please feel free to correct me)

Don't worry Darkey. I'm sure we'll be able to see it clearly enough. Cute!
