I love how everyone assumes any feature in Dubai---even rivers---is man-made.

18th December Update.

Cladding and steelwork progress 18th December. Although it’s the Eid holiday, work still goes on.

Very nice updates.
Will each floor height in the steel section of the building be the same as the concrete part of the tower, even though there not habitable floors?

The steel section each is around the height of 6.4m...


Much more than the 4 - 4.8m of floor height of the concrete sections

^same place where lev137 went. but i dont think they count burj dubais first grd floor anyway.
and near the top l155 and 157 there are double floors so when it says lev160, i think it equals 164 in total above grd or 166 above slab.

Unsure of what you mean by where has the 75th floor gone as it is very clear in Imres pic posted in Post No.2064 and is where it should be between floors 74 and 76???????????? and in my pic posted above.

Now Hong Kong (2IFC, Central Plaza, Bank of China...), Shanghai (SWFC, Jim Mao,... I was there and there're more than 4000 buildings with more than 30 floors) and NY.
Dubai in a few years.
