What are these "crown-like" things on the top of the tiers? Are they permanent? If they are, I have to say that they look very good. It is a great addition to the Burj Dubai.

WOW!!
FANTASTIC UPDATE!!
Thanks to Imre and Syed Aouf. Absolutely breathtaking!!
Aerials are beyond minds ability to imagine - is there any chance you can fly through the same route Imre, but at night??
and the cladding is progressing... freakishly fast. it has almost reached the top of the concrete structure.
Remember guys when there was a discussion a long time ago about the width of the tower and how it was becoming thin too quickly for it to look proportional at 800m? haha, anyone still think that? lol. The tower is looking just mint at the moment
Happy Skyscraping to everyone

btw @ thaproducer , please don't quote a big batch of photos just to say a few words. hyperlinks are sufficient. THanks

Great update in the past few days guys.


Thaproducer,

you qouted the whole post with 800 pictures just to say "WOW".

Don't let me catch you doing that again man. Learn some forum manners.

ATTENTION V A N H N R I C K, don't even think about doing the same thing. You're famous for that.
