I guess in Dubai you would prefer to wake up without the sun because of the high temperatures..

Pic of merged snapshots I made from
gerald's recent gigapixel pano.

Yes, Elite Residence is a SKYSCRAPER now, with core at lv 55 and circa 205m.
Floorplates have sped up as well: outer walls of lv 35 are under way. And above the base there's more than just a sample of cladding, it's more than a full floor. Looks a bit like Sulafa Tower there atm, but all will be different when laminations get off, I suppose.

What happens to some topics of the SUPERTALLS thread? Many titles aren't corect. This is DUBAI, not SHANGHAI!

Didn't you know? You can read it a few pages back that they are gonna lift this building here from Dubai with 10 Apache helicopters to Shanghai. Because of the economic crisis they can't find any tenants here in Dubai, but due to the economic boost in China they likely will find tenants there.

Yesterday was the best day for all the skyscraper-transportations around. I bet all helicopters will bring the towers to their ancestral places in a few hours... and this won't happen again during the next 364 days... Btw. good idea, admins!

Elite Residences is now taller than Le Reve with core formwork at lv 57 (+2 in April) and floorplates at about lv 38 (+3 in April).

Cladding and ornaments are coming quick now. I like the blue color of the glass, though the planned smaragd green woud've been a nice contrast.

Is the cladding blue and white, or is it all blue with paper still on some of it? I really hope that is blue and white.

sorry, but i doubt it.
protection layers still there and cladding might be orange (as i mentioned before).

edit: it seems to be partly white, we can see few unprotected panels already.

copper?
that should be interesting.
will it be a coated copper to keep the colour, or will it be uncoated so it turns the copper turquoise colour? (like the Statue of Liberty in NY)

Wow, the cladding and the ornaments look really nice. With a copper cladding it will be a really classy tower! Great!
