It certainly shows the fast cladding progress from seven floors above the 3rd mechanical upwards. cleaner windows!

OTR, the neighborly thing to do would be to get a really tall ladder and get your squeegee and chamois leather out and give it a really good once over for me.
But no, with you it's just me, me, me!!!

I am so confused. So Altin and OTR both saw the 5th steel floor (L160) being started, but now it's gone? What am I missing here?

Maybe there are beams on the 5th level, but they can't be seen from the angle of the photos? Or perhaps they had some beams up temporarily while they connected them into a larger piece, which was then lowered into the 4th floor? Just guessing.

This is my first post, though I have been lurking here for months unregistered. Dubai has to be one of the greatest places on earth. I hope to visit sometime.

Ive noticed quite a number of lurkers register lately.

...must find more ways of coercing them out of the woodwork


Regarding the burj, nothing much to say about it as there has not been any new info for quite a while. Only new pics and general discussion. Just a mater of playing the waiting game, watching the spire rise on the off chance the design has been changed...

So Sky Tower, what's it like being that rich?

Would you equate it more to a continuous orgasm or is it more like having the ability to fly?
