That does make me think, it will look very very different once it's cleaned.

this may help your mind clear a little bit.

If you also mean by highest floor we can access to, the internal ladder goes up far more than 700 metres.

this diagram is older but shows how far up the ladder goes upto (768 metres)

The next steel level started yesterday. The first beam is up!

So, anyone still believes it will be 705 meters tall?


... btw, where's elliot, the guy who first broke the news about Emaar running out of money and Burj Dubai topping at 300 meters?

Still believing in 815 metres.

Hey Build - the ladder continues to the top platform inside the pinnacle.

Hey Rob - the top platform "floor" is at 818.0 The top of the handrail is at 819.1. The plans say 818.0 total. The official measurement when taken after completion might include the top handrail and the Concourse level below the ground level for a total of 825.1.

Hey Deq - nice site but you may want to do some research before posting. There never has been an 815 m. plan. I know it was probably a typo but you posted some time ago that the Army will be putting communication equipment in the spire of the BD. I don't know where you got this but I have never heard anything about this before. I asked for your source but alas - no response.

Hey Abuedz - Great work on helping out on the cladding problem but your posts come on a little strong. I am sure the Burj would have still been built without your help. Do keep posting good info as you have done in the past.

Hey Altin - I heard you on the first column of section 21A. Great info - keeping us informed. So 694.5 m. One more section and we will be over 700 meters - wow. I haven't thought for a couple years now that the structure will only be 705 m. - or that 940 that was being thrown around either.

Strange they lowered the smaller crane one section. They may use it at this height for some time but why lower it one section ? I had noticed a while ago they never put in a red section at the top of tier 20 like they have been for every other tier top and like the other crane did. Perhaps they lowered it and are waiting for a red section to arrive onsite then they will raise it up - I kinda doubt that but who knows.

It will be interesting when we get some shots of the top. I wonder if they are building the pipe that will is the base of the pinnacle as they go or if they will wait untill they getting ready to jack it up.
