Really shows how much better it will look when all the gaps in cladding are filled in.

The future looks bright if that's what to expect.

Is Level 16 going to have the strips on the side cladding (you can see what I mean on the far left)?

i still cant believe that a structure of this magnitude is under construction and that far progessed in present days.......

something like that i thought will be build in maybe 10 years from now or 15 even.

Most of North America.....85% of 'your personal audience' was asleep when you posted that!

If you demand an answer most people will ignore you.

Have you tried Wikipedia?
Have you tried a Google search?

I'm sure I can safely speak for the whole of the SSC forum and we are all deeply sorry for neglecting your emergency post, we just didn't realize the gravity and life threatening urgency that has caused so much stress and personal anguish.
We all send our deepest sympathy to you and anyone who has the great fortune of being blessed with your iconic presence.

You must have been in complete turmoil and I humbly beg you to forgive us all.
I personally take full responsibility and I am hanging my head in shame.
Please don't ever regret registering with SSC, the whole thread would feel totally void and worthless without your contributions.

Please don't jump off a cliff to end this painful mortal coil, will you?
Sorry Sky Tower but Westyguy is right...

I am posting very few as well since in my opinion it's not worth the time. When you ask a serious question (i.e. engineering stuff) you don't get an answer in the much visited SSC Threads like the Burj Dubai thread. If you post a stupid comment like "Wow looks good!" or "One more floor since last week" which is a total waste of space in a thread you get a comment on your post.
Because of that I prefer other forums where there are more professionals posting and where height is not the only aspect which matters.
SSC is good for updates of projects all around the world, what is awesome but you can't expect too much here Westyguy, sorry.

Luckily for Dubai updates I just have to look out of the window...
