my buddy send me a plan showing the notch but ill keep you guessing first. i dont want spoil your geniuses.

on the size of the claddings: i guess the size of the claddings have been desided already. looking at the pics there are already steel brackets for the claddings, and the spacing should be atleast the size of the cladding

on why the cladding is "slow". i was informed that there will be a retest. this will be done on dubai. so guys , go pls take a look around the facade testing lab in dubai. i would guess its the same lab they have last year for the swiss company that was shown in discovery.


on the final height, not less than 900m! proof soon.

They have just poured the 129th floor at appx 465m.
This information is in the last page or 2.
Over 2600 posts! You are not a newbie I see.
You should know to do a little work instead of expecting other people to do it for you.
Grow up a bit maybe.
If you are "really curious" you can read the thread. or not

Thanks for the answer.

You really needed to prove your point though, didn't you? How pitiful...
