They are really pushing it with the cladding. Not even the Beijing World Trade Center is going this fast. It's simply a sight to behold.

Congrats to the mighty Burj, a piece of Coruscant right here on Earth.

Only one more milestone to go now...

To surpass the Warsaw Radio Mast and become the World's Tallest Structure ever.

Warsaw Radio Mast 1974-1991:
