I wanna say yes, but I don't know what you mean by that.

The first photo you posted to day looks invincible, just too tall for anything right now.

He probably meant the car. KIA is a South Korean company.

What amazing photos are appearing lately. They've given me the opportunity to imagine how tall one day One Dubai and Nakheel Tower will be in comparison to the Burj.

Nah. Being invited by E...R and S.....g (expenses paid) to be their guest for 8 weeks is much more fun

BTW, I see by some prints you uploaded that you also must have found one of the other 2 remaining intranet sites

Hi all.

Merry Christmas to all.

Nice update Imre.

I would imagine the second and possibly even the third wing of tier 24 have been attached. The next stage of jacking to 800m. or to top out should be very soon.

An exciting holiday season this year for us skyscraper fanatics.
