This is a document from people involved during design, is the red number that refers to the top of the concrete (not top of spire) a slip of the tongue?

AltinD is always against the idea that height of BD has been increased, and you are really trying hard to convince people.



I just wan to say that you will never know, there could be any last mins changes even if that is the true plan for BD in 818m height.


The schedule I post which you said is old is a very good example for the changes

I am not against the idea of height increase, nor I think it can not be achieved. All I am saying is that increasing the concrete section to over 700 meters, is not possible anymore.

... and yes the schedule you posted is old and does not confirm to the 818 meters design plan. Propably they corresponded to the old 705 meters one.

As of nowdays progress, they are still following the 818 plans, however it has been said over and over again that if there would be a height increase, it will come from the steel section redesign, especially heightening of the spire.

I really dont think the concrete will go higher than planned. It would be already high if completed now.

The site is woking fine for me... yesterday Old Town Resident posted some pix there.
---

Although I'd like to see an increase, I don't think there will be much more concrete floors than expected. The actual tier would have to be stretched enormously to gain much height, and that would distort Burj Dubai's typical appearance as a steep pyramid. So an uprating of some of the previous tiers as well would have been coherent, but they actually didn't do this...

818m are okay for me - a supertall spire on top of BD's roof cannot improve its look IMHO.
