I'll use this often for the question "How are the cranes attached to the building" fantastic shots - that must be a serious lens.

Next level of cladding. Terrific! Getting a feeling of the final look now - and looking better than in the renderings! Especially close--up!

Great pictures. Can really see the steelwork on the closeups of the crane's base.

If all goes to plan, then construction should conclude by the end of Dec 2008 and the tower will be ready for occupants by Sept 2009.

Lets keep fingers cross for no delays but maybe some surprises

Nice update too Imre (as always). Good to see the steel section taking shape and mechanical floor cladding commencing. Now, On with the Burj!!

The two cranes already surpass the Warsaw Mast and the tower itself will top out late next year.

I'll bear it in mind forevermore as Bear Dubai.
Or is this name improper due to an ambiguity? "Bear" could be considered as a bad omen in financial issues. So an alternative would be "Teddy-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named" . But I prefer "Bear Dubai", and Burj Dubai will surely succeed on the market anyhow...
