Hello Forumers, Ive been watching this thing growing for 3 years and i finally decided to register now.

From what i have seen in the pics on the last few pages, they might be ready to lift the spire up again, but since we have only one picture without the last wing of tier 25 installed, we do not really know if it is ready.

Here is the pic from imre again, which shows the burj from the opposide angle.

Maybe someone could take another shot from that angle again to show the recent progress on tier 25?

But how do you know they already attached the third wing of tier 25 on the other side of the building too? Tier 25 consists of three wings. And atleast i can not see the third one on your photo.

And as already stated it may be more difficult to install that last one with the crane on the other side of the building.

The transition from the spire to the cladding seems so unfinished.
