i don't think so because Millenium Tower has only 285 m and if you look at Burj Dubai Lake Hotel, you see it in lower horizontally surface. So this picture took from helicopter from 400-450 m i think. maybe a little higher

Agreed. There's no way that shot was taken from a building. No other building that tall is that close to the Burj Dubai. It appears to be at least 100 m higher than the 306 m Burj Dubai Lake Hotel, and looks to be at about the same level as the observation floors on the Burj Dubai (424 m). Definitely taken from a helicopter.

Sorry to repost the image, but if you have a look at the picture it looks like it was taken from about the same height as the Observation Deck will be. So you have a little impression of what the vue will be from up there (the air could be clearer though).

If you go here you can get ver 3. It has the use for each floor and the correct pour times and steps for the concrete section.

Also unless they change the plan 160 Mezz. 3 is 6.4 meters high. I think your progress diagram is the best out there Cul. I save each and every one.

ha yes, thanks.
about what floor its up to. yes, still at lev158mezz roof.or 605m.

What we need is a good webcam that is zoomed in right at the top, with big bold numbers stating the height, floor count, and date. But, i know this task is beyond human capabilities. hehe

It's nice to see the cladding continue to rise with the building.

just one question that I would like to get an answere for;
Why is my post deleted and the post about the jailing of people in dubai gets to stay?? (i am not against my post being deleted if someone thinks it is off topic or things like that)
just PM me, and delete this post as well, it is completely off topic
I just donīt know who deleted it, and only want to know what I am doing wrong so I wont repeat my misdoings,
maby it was because I edited it, I only did that to add to it instead of creating a whole new post, maby editing is not that well seen here, and I understand why.
I dont want no trouble hehe

sorry all for this crappy off topic nonsense of mine, please delete this post after responding to me, I just want to know what is ON and what is OFF in this forum and I think that my 'deleted' post was not that bad at all, I was just saying something I know many would have wanted to say

peace out

you say it blacksmith, imo they should start emidiately cladding above 4th mechanical floors, with this progress speed they will arrive them by the end of the month.

BTW they had cladded 12 floors in just 15 days, that is what i call FAST!

I wish the air would have been this clear on Sunday morning. The haze was that bad that you couldnt see the far end of the runway. I was looking foorward to seeing this in the flesh so to speak. I saw it at night though from the air a few weeks ago and it looked superb all lit up.
