Section of a 360 degree panorama, scaled down 30%.

Just thought it might be worth posting this to show our visitors from out of town that Dubai does have some nice green spaces in it



(taken from the same place as the vertical pano I posted earlier in the thread)

Hi all.

Great updates guys.

I thought I could make out the center support for the small crane (R3) in Geralds shot from 2 days ago.

R1 will be lowered down to the podium in the next few days leaving R3 as the final crane on the BD. Shorly thereafter R3 will take its final journey to the podium in an elevator.

The completion of the crane disassembly proceedure is one of the last steps in the external construction - just a few cladding panels and the landscaping left to go ...
