It will be interesting to see if they DO or DON'T carry on after they hit the 819m mark, matybe they will even stop before it? This is the exciting part coming up, I hope they carry on after 819 so that we won't know how high it will be in the end , I'm Mike btw everyone.

you shouldn't know and you don't want to know. For a starter, you may be tempted to click on the sub videos next to the main one, which some people might think of as inappropriate.

What makes you think that they will start work on the interiours of the tower only after the spire has been jacked in the final position?

All they need is the cladding on that particular area.

Slowed down again.

Is that a glimpse of the spire just about the same level as the access bridge to the crane?(2nd pic)

That's always a great angle with the Ras Al Khor sanctuary and the flamingos in the foreground. We need more pictures from there.

These recent pictures of Dubai are amazing. Spire's looking cool. Now, I can only imagine what the interior will look like even if it's only half as awesome as the outside.
