I don't know, but desert areas can have small trees and grasslands. But you never know with Dubai.

studying Fury plan and otr pics, I think they may can complete tier 23 before rising spire and possibly they complete tier 22 after.

Hi all.

Fantastic updates guys.

Yes they did start the next section before finishing section 22. The 3 sections of tier 22 each have 2 wings. (the second wing will face the remaining crane) They built only 1 wing of section 22 and are now working on the same wing of section 22A. They may complete the jacking then erect the 3 sections of the second wing of tier 22 and then the 3 sections of the only wing of tier 23 - we shall see.

I wish I could go up there and measure the diameter of the pinnacle we can see sticking up. With the 2 attachment points (for a fin) we can see being 1.8 m. apart I guessed the dia yest. at 1.5 m. But it would make more sense that it is 1.2 m. dia. and that the top platform will be welded to it in the coming days. It just doesn't look only 1.2 - also the very top fin which is just under the top platform by a few cm. faces straight South - so unless they rotate it some what we see it is not the top of tier 30 pinnacle 4.

Now why the hell can't Emaar see the important items being brought up on this forum and send the appropriate people a full set of current plans ??? I mean ... really ...

On another note what is the forums plans for this thread ? Is it going to 20,000 posts now or has nobody bothered to make a new one ?
