How about instead of making fun of people we enlighten them as to why they're wrong, like civilized adults.

1. First of all nobody making fun of them except themselves.
2. Again nobody is paying me to be a teacher, so at least i can make some "fun-o-them".
3. Why so serious?

Soon, the mobile cranes can not reach the top of the wings anymore.
I expect that concrete pumps will also be installed there, in near future.

As I remember well, BD had 3 pumps on the core, and 1 on each wing.


My biggest curiosity however, is how the cranes will be aranged, esp. when the building reaches 800 m or so.
And how the spire is built, and the cranes will be dismanteled.
I have to be patient for a few years...

What's the estimated height expected this tower to reach at the end of this year, if everything goes according to plan?

with an average of at least 1 floor per week it could reach 250m already.
