Interesting. A new crane being mounted halfway up. Is that crane infront of the tower the future main crane?

Just for the information, 8 is not the lucky # in the region.. 7 is.
what confirm this information is when Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid
bid the highest to buy the car tag # 7 when it was auctioned from
the Road & transportation authority,, you can search this info
online.... ask any Arab within the region and they'll tell you 7
is the favorite # in the region
