Nice to see this going so well. Looks like they'll be closing in on floor 20 soon enough. Core looks like it's on 32-33..

I'm a little curious about those heavy pours for this design. In its present state, it looks like a huge bunker. Was climate a factor here?

Agree - walls of Marina 101 nearby appear thicker than here. This clearly isn't just a curtain wall, but a high percentage of the load is carried by the outside, not only by the relatively slim core, I think.

Yeah, come to think of it, supporting reinforced concrete 380m high absolutely requires a lot of load-bearing pours. I think of a time when no one thought you could push cement that high. I'd love to see the effect when the interiors are finished.

Whats so special about this project? old design indeed and looks like a box really with small windows. The plot is so small hardly can come up with some sort of design. Yes it is a tall tower and who would want to live above 50+ floors except if they want to hibernate, I mean they would spend half their life going up and down the lifts if they want to enjoy living in dubai.

Anyway, does any one of you have experience of living in 80th ot 90th floor for a long time?

Cheers

Have you ever travelled in a high speed elevator before? Was in the John Hancock Centre before and the lift went from ground level to the observation deck in around 30 seconds or just a little bit more.

Still better then spending 2/3 of your life going back and forth the endless labyrinths of suburbia.

across the street are tiny buildings like the civil defense building and some mid-rise-towers.

The Summit, just next the Civil Devence building, is a 200+ meters tall tower (on top of spire)
