Tier 3 @ 125m minus tier 2 @ 75m = 50m etc.

Check Culwulla's excellent diagram

Nevermind guys, Fury's diagram seemed to work just fine. Up to Tier 24 now on the model. Should have some media ready by tomorrow

in Cull's diagram... if u center ur mouse point over the very middle of the base and scroll up. it continues to look okie.. until the steel section where the tip of the tower and upper floors are all over to the left..... surely the spire is going to be in dead center ?

Anyone know how that stair case is going to be protected?
Or maybe people have to go up the stairs in fierce winds.

Of course they have to do it twice a day.
And crane operators have to climb even highter: that's not a job for little girls !

At the bottom of the tower progress: (both from this month)




to


These floors at the bottom, are they mechanical floors?


BTW, is this Al Burj fake or real ???



Does look really similar to initial Al burj design to be fake, but the website says its a fake render.
