The other two cranes jumped over the weekend and it seems that they are also preparing the fourth one to jump soon. What I also observed this morning was that they fill the inner parts of the columns with concrete.

4th crane jumped as well and a lot of concrete mixer trucks are waiting outside the plot on the street. The scaffoldings around the columns are also rising pretty quick now.

Just never click on these links

I believe it's 588m until the spire begins.

@harry chao: great update, all cranes have risen now

Nah, you're thinking of the Burj Dubai. Khalifa doesn't even live in the city and did nothing to build the Burj Dubai.

Not the best shot with my mobile, but you can (clearly) see that the concrete at the column is above ground and that they installed a formwork.

that's a massive amount of rebar in the last pic, but still just a very small part of what they need for the whole tower

I still am still impressed by the beams that form the four corners of the 'legs' of the building. Massive.
