Great pics, thanks Imre!

Is there already some inside information about building the steel structure? Didn't the concrete core have measurement deviations or things like that at such height? Is the steel fitting well at it's concrete 'foundation' and so on?
If anyone knows about such things, I hope it will be posted, cause if so we will have some nice stuff to discuss about!

Another question, does somebody know how this loading platforms are fixed on the building? There floating in the air so nice but it will give a huge weight on the construction!

Keep up the good work!

It is a little sad, isn't it? This whole Dubai thing is totally unwalkable. We'll see how they do in 20 years.

WOW! Amazing. And it will get a lot better. The magic of human engineering and desing, hehe .

If Dubai keeps expanding into the gulf it will be half on land and half in the ocean, .

Seems to have been a good day for photography in Dubai, with clear weather.


Looking at the change since the early 90's, one can imagine how Dubai will look in another decade.

They'd be quite annoyed if it blew over just before the end of contruction.

ZZ agreed, they are now working with tubular colums as opposed to steel "I" beams if you look at Imre's post 2695 pic number 3.

The will sleeve into each colums and tie in pretty fast with the structural bracing so we should see a rapid increase in height over the coming months.

I had not seen that, it looks very good. I like the way parts of the city is stretching over the water.

I see they will add new breakwaters, and trump international hotel and tower seems redesigned, but maybe its just a general render.

It all seems to be turning out well though, a city of the future. I think it will feel more urban (somehow the word urban makes me think of concrete, but i mean it in a designwise modern as well as social way) when more project are finished and the density is increased. There are quite large chops of emptiness in Dubai, not to talk about the lack of landscaping, as it is still in progress.

Are they aware of the raising sea level problem we'll have!? Artic ice is melting ( the portion of groenland.. which add water to the ocean actually... )at an never expected rate and oceans expands because its getting hotter , so why are they building in the coast? I know that dubai is in a sort of a bay but water will find his way through!?

Seems like cities near coast don't care, but in a near future, great cities will have to deal with it.

Where on earth did you get that figure from? Are you in contact with the Project Manager in charge or erecting the steel section?

Yup, as I have mentioned earlier: The first floor was build with sections supplied by Nippon Steel while the rest will be (is being) build with 2 meters in diameter hollow tubes, supplied by ArcelorMittal and all of them already arrived on Eversendai's workshops in Dubai and Sharjah. The cross sections, supplied also by ArcelorMittal, are being delivered in parts as per the requirements.

Thanks Altin, great info.

So steel arriving on site pre-fabricated with webs, fittings etc should see some rapid progress with the steelwork from here on in.
