^its 643m. with columns up to 645m.
thats one hell of a shadow.
#yes the cladding looks shiny even now? it hasnt even been cleaned yet? wait until it gets its first wash!
#venhenrick-i was told the air con is pumped from another suburb? where big warehouse type bldgs house the chillers ect.maybe wrong?
its the new generation of energy saving towers.
because of the severe heat and condensation, this water will be collected and drained in a seperate system in a huge tank in towers basement. the water will be then pumped into site irregation for towers landscaping.

With concrete used for Burj Dubai, what's roughly the maximum height tower can reach? (for example for perimeter of former world trade centre rising all the way)

Were these last pictures taken in the morning or the evening? I want to get a handle on which direction we're looking at. Nice pictures, the place is still a mess so I can't wait to see what it looks like when the area is cleaned up and ready to go.

I just wanted to give big thanks to Old Town Resident, I really appreciate your updates. Lots of people here quite rightly praise Imre's skills with the camera but OTR your updates are excellent for showing progress with the cladding and upper and lower floor developments. Just wanted to let you know your work is appreciated man.
