The Tokyo SkyTree is probably the fastest supertall (tower) to go up so fast!!!! It makes everything else look slow.
FYI - Tokyo Skytree is growing 30 meters per month!!!!!

I don't think I've ever seen a tower rise this fast!? 30m a month is pretty awesome! Yesterday it stood at 105m.

Gotta give a lot of respect to these guys!

@ ER: I'm just wondering if the core has stopped/slowed down yet? I mean, how far can it be allowed to get ahead of the floors?

True, I suppose, they can only make do with what's available to them huh...

I've noticed that the formwork (for the floors) has moved up a level ... or is in the process of doing so.

It makes you wonder how far can they build the bare-bone core (without the floors). I mean, is there a limit? (I assume there must be but it seems a bit off on how high they can go with only the core intact).

When I was talking with Imre last year, he seemed worried about the congestion on the ground. With such a dense population in one block, there seems to be only one road. Can you imagine trying to leave in your car at 8:00am in the morning (to go to work) with everyone else trying to do the same on the same road? There could be "gridlock" like you never seemed before!!!

Ha! Al attar's progress strikes another building. At this rate it should be completed around 2020.

I think the progress on this one has been fairly steady. The core did shoot up quick. Constructing the full floors naturally take much longer. Comparing this to Al Attar isn't even close.

This one should be completely done in 2.5-3 years. Top-out may even be possible later next year.

Well, I guess it's a good thing that we do have some kind of progress here, when there is little or nothing happening on so many other projects in Dubai. The floors sure are taking time to construct here but at least it's rising!
