Lisimah, if you could meld two jpg's, before and after, to show the jump/change - that would be perfect!

Before core jumping, it looked like this (right side of core):



After:



Perhaps they need to raise the red crane before the rest of the core can jump.

Today many steel columns erected in left wing:



Before:



Besides, rest of the back wing is jumping already and in the core are poured new floor:



Before:



Finally all last day and all night they poured something in the podium area.

It looks like the works on the tower resumed in full scale, and maybe soon we can see an increase speed up to new floor per week, who knows.

YES !!!

We now have regular core jumps and wing jumps.
It's not going very fast yet, but steadily.

Isn't it crazy how the World's Tallest Building height has increased over the past years? Only 20 years ago the Petronas Twin Towers were the tallest in the world at 452 meters, now we are already reaching over 1km!!! And, even though this building isn't even finished yet there are already even taller towers under construction. Who knows where we'll be in another 20 years time . I'm also really happy to see the construction speed increasing again on this tower, can't wait for the first cladding!

BK had a delay in the cladding because of bankruptcy of the first selected cladding supplier.

the whole project is inspired by Downtown Dubai! let's not hide behind our fingers, but that doesn't mean this project has no unique features, the fact that it is going to surpass the 1 km height is an achievement by itself, and watching it rise is very exciting nevertheless.
