It should now have reached the phase where it gets narrow at the top.
Amazing construction pace if you look on the first pic of this thread: the bulk of the work done in less then 6 months! And seems to be for Dubai means very well orgnized and exceptional quality .

I'm really looking forward to seeing this finished. I hadn't paid much attention to this tower before but actually it's a pretty cool design. The concrete finish somewhat disguises its form but I think the cladding will make it much clearer and cleaner. It sure does look scruffy right now!

Is it over 300m yet Altin? If so, I count 9 buildings over 300m in Dubai.
