Why is it not the WTB anymore? Have you seen a taller one? I haven't, only on paper.... Until it IS taller in reality (!), BD will be the WTB.

Question

Is the Burj Dubai Tower a 24 hour construction site? Are people working around the clock?

So BD reaches up to 720m now... last two levels of tier 22 have started
I didn't expect that to happen already, as the steel skeleton of the levels below don't look finished to me yet.

I think each floor level completion will be very rapid progress for the remaining floors.

I wonder how many surprises are remaining though?

The suit is really just complying with what the MSDS says.
