Damn, what a life

I'm sure that you can make money out of what you are doing now, I'm sure there is someone who would buy all those pictures you take.

Anyway, great job Imre, SkyscraperCity would NOT be the same place without you.

They want to T/O at the end of the year but there may be several reasons why the construction may be slowed or maybe they will go faster than they they thought. It is a unique structure and 200m is a lot, so we can only speculate about the real T/O time...
i guess they'll top out between August and October 08

I really hope the new design for Al Burj is nice. I hope the BD and AB compliment each other.

The first pic is a bit deceiving, but I do believe they are still working on the 2nd steel floor. Great update Old Town, always appreciated.

Yeah looks like still the 2nd floor . The top beams are the same size as the ones below and the last concrete floor, which I believe is right.

Since they started working on the steel I don't think it has slowed any, but I'm also pretty sure it hasn't sped up. They just need to get the hang of the whole steel thing before we see progress really pick up. It also looks like those steel floors are a pretty complicated structure...
