According to information posted earlier in this thread the pilings were completed at the end of November! Work on the raft is either underway or starting very soon.

Yes there was quite a deep hole, but the site was so vast that the depth was hardly noticeable from afar.

Interesting that AS+GG are doing things differently this time around. But I guess they're learning and refining this kind of three-pronged megatall design with each commission.

As I thought. The raft must be already poured and curing now. Thanks for the renders. Can't wait for the update

In some renders I can see the helipad, but in others I can't.

Did they removed it from the orignal design?

will certainly be a major construction we will all follow with our heart for years. i wasn't a member back when Burj Khalifa was growing, but i kept lurking this forum for a few years before i joined, amazing to see all these photos all the time, dreaming to have a building like this in your backyard. i joined only the forum the time i knew that i was going to be in dubai for a few hours and to have the chance to see the tallest building in the world, now we can witness it all from the beginning again.

Thanks so much for the renderings. It will give us all something to contemplate (as well as argue about) until your April update!
