Thanks for the clear view renders alsaif2012.

Other than that it'll miss its best office/ apartment views, no complaints. Looks beautiful and tall !
Fake windows? It's just curtain wall glass over the concrete wall, as MANY of the skyscrapers and buildings of the world that offer a global image of a glass facade, but they actually hide things behind it.

Sorry, but that reason is just not right technically speaking. If it was then they could not allow stopping the main core going up for a month because of the 'lack of bonding' at the top joint!

The reality is this is just not going at anything like full speed, presumably for financial reasons.

yeah but this isnt covering up some structural work, its wasting what would be the best wrap around units in the tower.
on all three sides.

I think the real reason is cranes jumps:

In order to make a jump with the main core formwork, they have to lift the lower crane before. But that is possible only if small floors outside the main core are realized just under the formwork (to instal big steal beams, in grey, that support cranes).
As you can see, the Wolf crane had been lift today then tomorrow they will lift the fromwork on thursday they will pour the concrete and this week end they lift the formwork again. Afterwards they will have to wait the Liebherr crane jump.

More over, i think the best configuration is if wings formworks are around ten levels under core formwork and not less. So that they would be able to instal protection screen for the core outside floors. They make a start 2mouths ago but they disappeared feww days ago...

Else the jump of th wolf crane had been very slow ( one week between the steal beam and the jump instead of one day). May be some materal issues.
And i don t undersand why they don t have erected a third crane on the core??

Thanks for the update!

Maybe you already told it but, if that was the case, then I missed it: in the actual level it was displayed as the level 21, but now it is the 23. Does anyone know the reason?

to not to change floortags after every jump it showing only approximately finished levels (+/- 2).
