This is your personal opinion or there has been some kind of announcement by constructors / promoter about this?

In construction you always have plans when different phases of the construction will be accomplished. Not always are completed in the right date but you have to plan in advance to get things ready.

That's such a fantastic question that I asked myself the same before but,it's too early to even think of this now

At least 2 years must be waited

That will be 828 methers then.

Let's say: they build 2 floors (= approx. 6 meters) a week at this moment, and can keep this pace all the time.
This means: at approx. 828 metres 140 weeks from now. So 3 years. End of 2017.


Anybody has a better guess, or more detailed info from the project?
I think everybody who follows this thread is curious...

Then what are the photographs of?
Just a 20-story building under construction....?

People walking on the moon. Also a pipe dream for you?


When I saw the first renders of Burj Khalifa, I assumed it was some vision for the 21st./22nd century.
But 3 years later I discoverered at was already at 200 metres...

Keep in mind floor plans get smaller the higher you get up so less time is required for rebar and forms.
