New Level

Eventually new steel at the top but I think an explanation as to the steel config from Cul or Fury needed.

Very much out of context with previous levels and looks to have some form of a guide for the spire.

Hi all.

First - nice updates Dennis, OTR, and Imre.

Not very good news Imre. How reliable are your sources ? While I can see the economy issues affecting the BD I just don't see this thing being slowed down too much. Completion into 2010 does sound possible though - top out is well behind schedule for sure.

Great news in your shots OTR ! Section 23B is no different than 23A in the plans besides the fact its roof is the terrace for the start of tier 24. The different looking pieces must have something to do with jacking. Although the curved looking piece kinda looks to be about the size of half of the smaller 2 wings that are part of tier 23.

The next few days should make things more clear.

Jacking should not be long after tier 23B is up.

Puts paid to any unsubstantiated gossip about the BD on hold.

Cladding works near the base are also in progress as I saw last night.

And to top it all this morning theres more steel on top.

I saw this picture, and it immediately reminded me of a similar pic of burj dubai taken from the same angle which i saved a long time ago. Anyway after some digging I found that pic, and so here i post it together with this photo for everyone to see the progress BD has made... enjoy

Has been posted, but is truly amazing

@all
Hopefully I'll also contribute some pics tomorrow, I found a nice spot for distant pictures I believe: The bridge of Intersection #2 at Safa Park. Skyline looks very nice from there. Of course I'll take some close-ups from downtown area as well

I drove by some hours later and the level seamed pretty much completed (partially of course, as compared with the levels below).

Imre, you're kidding me. The 8th steel floor has now still in cladding process compared to last Friday.
