CULWULLA... remember next time to shade in the small core wings because they are at final width.. and it may be deceptive to some viewers thinking its meant to be wider when in fact its not. =)

And btw you still haven't correct the tier 2 mistake.. you have the first tier on the left as tier 3, when infact its ment to be at tier 2.

And tier 7 looks awefully small, widen it abit?

sorry if i sound blunt lol.

i read on forum that lev154/155/156 will have steel incorporated into concrete superstructure,
thus top concrete floors may take longer then the usual.
big wink for everyone.

wow.. such a tall structure... wow....

I'm sorry I didn't realize that Dubai already had the structure up.... I don't memorize the exact heights of the tall structures, I'm sorry... I just know the top 5 currently...

You're about 2000 years out. lol

The great Pyramid of Cheops was finished approx. 4570 years ago (no one knows exactly what date it was finished). And to think that it held the record for approx. 3900 years. Now a building is lucky to hold the record for 10 years.

Anyone want to guess how long Burj Dubai will hold the record?

oops, i should know all the s tuff on cheops. i studied it so much.i ment 2600bc.
but probably more like built between 2589 - 2566 BC and took about 20 years to construct.
i dont think another structure will ever equal the pyramids time as no1.
41 decades as WTB!

Erm the fastest they can reach after mid october, according to the schedule is 26 oct. This is due to the multiple core setback plus dismantle core which alone take 2 weeks to complete.


Do not be discourage however, BD is expected to hit T19 or 643m at least before new year. Rising almost 100 metres in just 4 months. (545.7m as compared in 3rd sept). This is the fastest progress so far because at that rate is a speed of 300m/yr.
