Sorry for posting this on this tread, but i have no other option since:

As of this time, both treads about the Tall Tower are closed :S :S :S

Since obviously i can't post this on either of those treads, i post it here. Maybe better to open the new one.

(a new tread was made today for the tall tower in dubai because of new design release today)

Tonight

The opening of the structural support for the spire can be seen clearly in the last image.

I don’t think so long before we reach the next tier.

I enjoy interpreting it and putting it all together both for myself and everyone who reads my posts. I enjoy the complexity of this record breaking structure and truly believe it will pave the way for many even taller structures.

Thus I compiled my comprehensive Burj Dubai Plan from many different sources, my tier methodology, and my pic to plan comparisons that I add to regularly. My BD pic collection is near 21,000 strong and growing.

I am collecting pics and info on 9 structures from around the world but none peak my interest like this one.

Hey nice updates Dennis and OTR.

Don't forget that preceeding you quote should be that 3 fellow forumers were shown the door to the holy grail on ssp: two who chose wisely and one who didn't?

Hey, don't know if this already has been posted today but found this:

Tall Order: Super Skyscraper Plan

It will be more than 1km high, have 150 lifts and will take over 10 years to construct, say the developers of what could become the world's tallest building.

The Islamic design-inspired Nakheel Tower will be the centre piece of a multi-billion pound inner-city harbour development in Dubai.

Its makers claim it will be so tall that the tower will experience five different microclimatic conditions above its height.

And high speed shuttle lifts will mean people will be able to see the sunset twice - from the bottom and again from the top of the building.

Nakheel - the company that created man-made islands in the shapes of a palm tree and the world - is behind the build.

Its chief executive officer, Christopher O'Donnell, cautiously told a news conference: "From our perspective, we are building a tower that's going to be over 1km in height.

"This is a complete iconic development. It may be the tallest. Someone may build something taller."

But "tallest building" claims are notoriously difficult to make. Debates about what counts as a candidate include whether buildings under construction should be considered and whether roof-top antennas count.

What is certain is that the tower will climb above the current holder of the "world's tallest building" position - the Emirate's own Burj Dubai.

Asked if the firm was worried about embarking on such a development during a global financial crisis, Mr O'Donnell said: "It was always going to be a project that would take 10 years-plus.

"When you go about trying to fund a project like this, you have to take account of the economic cycles."

The company would not comment on how much the tower will cost to build.

Oh my god...
You have to be kidding me...

So, Burj Dubai is around 3 months delay, so it supposed to be topped out somewhere in January?

I'm sure you'll be interested in the renders released today for Al Burj.
I wonder if Skytower could get us plans on that one....
