Jus can't wait until the skin of the tower covers the whole structure. Especially on the top (steel) part of the tower, the slenderness and the spire itself would look really stunning

Im affraid you may have to loosen up a bit unless you would rather have the large majority of western investors spending their money elsewhere. News like this is not what you need if you want to fill all those beautiful buildings http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/e...es/4200952.stm

Awesome building, Its good that there are cities like Dubai that are not affraid and have the money to build things like this.

I have a question... How wide is it at the top of the Burj Dubai ???

Hi all.

Thanks for the update OTR. Wow - the first section of tier 19 is really moving along.There is a setback / terrace on the North side ( the opposite side of the structure in OTR's shot ) of the section being built that is already becoming evident by the look of the progress. The next set of 3 terraces has a smaller wing facing the same direction for the first time since the main wings. These smaller wings will become terraces themselves further up the structure.

Here is a print showing the start of tier 19. The 5 vertical lines are 4.5 m. apart - the same gridsize used in most prints.

ta fury, i can see staircase location. its only tiny with lots of empty space around.
so tier19A next? (lev170/171) which will bring height to 656m?

Does anybody know, how they meet their energy requirements?

Buy it from neighboring states?
Build quite a lot new power plants?

Or most likely they build a new city complex only for this purpose: Dubai power plant land! Where the cooling towers of course meet new height records.

What's spire jacking stage?

It's shown on some diagram and it's located between 9th and 10th steel floor meaning it should be there or should be close to being there...

The tower should start to sway more and more with progressive cladding. Before, the wind could just power straight through the naked tower.

That's a tricky question, um...

They're nearly finishing off the 10th steel floor. This is the floor that made the structure become the tallest THING ever made by mankind
