It's more like 1 floor ever 2 weeks. or if we're lucky 3 floors every month.

But it should speed up now the floor area and amount of steel needed is less.

It's probably a less optical zoom camera, like x3 or something and he might be using digital zoom.

I use x12 optical for mine so I can "afford" to take pics from big distances without using the digital zoom feature (which I have dissabled anyway)

Diffrent material at the mechanical floor cladding?

OTR wrote something that they change the position of the fountains...so the redesign the lake maybe...

Does anybody see the horizontal line (nearly in the middle) at the mechanical floors cladding in the pictures from OTR today? It looks unnormal....the reflection is diffrent....Does they used for the upper part of the mechanical floor other glass? I dont hope so...

yes the 8th steel section is well underway. hopefully 9th section will start soon. which will bring it to 643m.
otr-how tall will the fountain be? i heard 150m? that would be incredible. We have one her in Cnberra which is 134m and is amazing to watch.
Cullwulla there was an article last week that stated 160m and the fountains would be syncronised to music. I will try and dig it out. (pardon the pun)

otr-thanks
so at 160m high, the fountain would reach tier3.
that would look incredible. the spray from it would be nice walking around on a hot day.
theres a small one in sydneys hyde park which becomes popular on hot days because everyone stands near the off spray. very cool.
are water craft allowed on the lake or is it just for ducks? that was my next question. would these new man made lakes attract local bird life? that would awesome at base of burjD.
