Fury has made a great job with this floor elevation list

I share your opinion. The excuse some people have is: "It has to look old".
C'mon, just look at the bottom right corner, does that look like an intentional attempt to make it look old.

I am pretty sure there is already electricity in the tower unless they are working on all interior with bare hands and wooden tools hehe

But when is sir Imre going to show us the new beam??? Imre we are lost with out your sharing eye
Met a group of Dubaians on ther way to Dubai on an airplane today, but I had to go off the plane in Milan (damnshit) was seriously considering hiding in their luggage, but it surprised me that they had no interest what so ever in the burj !!! how is that even possible???, seeing it grow in front of your eyes and bringing your city/country to the forefront of modern time

Thanks CULWULLA

I had 6.4 in mind double the 3.2 meters.. But 601.7 is still Cool as heck!

Cheers,

It's expanding pretty fast.

I don't really like the particular building design of it. Looks a bit tad plain to me.



Cheers, and I hope it won't take long to finish (for its height).

Maybe a bit more height at the moment as the two vertical columns that are now in place look more than one floor high.

I will try and get pics in the morning.
