Hi all.

Nice shots as always Imre. You too Oldtown.

Urban.Kovac - Yes you are correct - as I also said a few thread pages ago. They are pouring / working on level 155 Mezzanine.

Harryc - No sorry I don't have near the info on the spire as this magnificent structure. Maybe no bell because they are skin friction piles not down to bedrock.

I guess the 7 missing levels of the tier 12 wing will need at least two weeks alone, for instance.

By the way, that's a great shot by Imre showing the north face, which is taken less frequently on close-up views than the sunny south face.

And the second pic of your street panorama confused me at first... before recognizing that it's also inverted, like the rearviewmirror shot above. But of course thanx a lot for this one, Imre, and for all the other great pictures, too (including Old Town Resident)!
No crane ready go up or down, or any steelwork stored on the site today, and I was almost everywhere in the Burj vicinity.

Of course not, the big ship with the bulk cargo hasn't arrived from Korea yet. I heard it was delayed/re-scheduled a number of times.

Anyone have any idea why it's taking them so long to build this last batch of floors?
