My bad, wasn't thinking. I was thinking of the shape of the structure instead of the base. Please ignore :P

Anyway, I read that it should cost 1.25 billion. Burj Khalifa is 1.5 billion. Technological advancements that allow a higher tower at a lower cost or will it likely exceed its budget?

And they didn't use a webcam, yet !!

I think the reason is that they want people to keep searching about this tower's construction news

The core is clearly 8 floors, which was posted last page.

Are the concrete floors below the yellow formwork labeled correctly.

In my fallible point of view, not every yellow ring is a floor!





Those two pictures are taken from the above picture. We can see that the yellow ring (Which many people here said that it's one floor) is almost as tall as a the man who is standing there! Does that mean Each floor is 1.7 - 2 Meters?! I can say from what I saw in the building structure that Every two yellow rings represent one floor.

Here's how you determine the levels, although this isn't entirely accurate as to where the upper, recently casted levels are at ie levels 7,8,9 & 10. However you can conclude that there should be 4 levels in the jump form currently; three (levels 7,8,9) already casted and one (level 10) being worked on.



The main deck is where the initial survey is done, door way blockouts, penetrations formed including for ferules for rebates and polystyrene blockouts for each slab level, installation of reinforcement by steel fixers, tie offs, concrete poured and vibrated.

The trailing decks is where tie bars are removed, shutters broken free, stripping of penetrations and where the jump form system is locked into place.

Source: me, I manage these types of construction projects.

Also does anyone know why level 5 has a higher ceiling? I assume its a mech level?
