Yes, the philippinos on this board seem very obsessed with their country.

800m is so very close now, another historical mark

Hope everybody enjoyed Xmas!

Good to see the progress on tier 24. If the third element is attached to the spire they can jack again. We'll see how much will happen before New Year's Eve.

Cheers

Hi all.

Hey Cul.

- Tier 27 has no wings - it starts with a terrace that is the roof of the wing below and rises up circular at 2.1m. diameter.
- Tier 26 has one wing - it starts with a terrace of a second wing but rises up with one wing.
- Tier 25 has 2 wings - it starts with a terrace of a third wing but rises up with 2 wings.
The spire tier they are working on right now is tier 24 - it has 3 wings.



We still have no indication of whether the third wing of tier 24 is attached yet - the one on the opposite side of the pinnacle pipe from the crane.

When all 3 are up the next stage of jacking should happen right away.

After jacking I think they will attach the one small wing that will face opposite the larger wing of tier 23 in either 1 or 2 jacking stages as it is 19.2m. long. Once that is up I think they will jack to top out to attach the small half wings of tier 23 as they will connect the cladding to the small and larger wings.

Then finish the 2 sections left of the second larger wing of tier 22 and attach the small wing that connects the cladding to the 2 larger wings.

Then finish up the cladding and begin the crane dismantling proceedure.

Once the exterior is finished I hope they start allowing site visits again so we can get interior fitout updates.

Happy Holidays everybody.

I'm quite sure it will not top-out for a very good reason. Emaar would have no time for marketing at all, and they don't want to miss the value of the top-out even for the sake of NYE. Me thinks.

Bikes, agree entirly, although I always thought the New Years Eve would be the big one.

No announcements or anything from EMAAR to suggest topping out, so I tend to believe what I posted a few days ago, that last week in January will be T.O. and no celebrations until 100% complete.

One more jacking stage until top out?

Hi all.

I'm thinking by now that all 3 wings of tier 24 are up.
We shall see if there is 1 or 2 jacking stages left to go but I'm leaning towards 2.
Even with 2 more stages left they could still top out by NYE. Emaar doesn't release anything untill long after the fact anyway. I agree they have no celebration planned untill completion.

They are so wrapped up in their fricken secrecy bullshit they will probably not let the general public know about top out for fear of having to give out the 818 meter height.

The height that we have known about for 2 years.
That fact pisses them off to no end - and makes my day.

Fury but the thing is it might not be 818 or 819. We just think it will be.
