i cant help myself wishing there will be another shot from this angle again. I think there is no other perspective where everything looks so unbelievable extreme like this... And this has been a while now... should be much more impressive now.

I also like that this is the only perspective where you can understand the system of the setbacks....

Just awesome!!!

yeahh this is my Desktop paperwall since July. Please some friend from Dubai could take that same picture updated?

I must ask a stupid question. How do the workers come to the top and down? Are the elevators aren't installed inside yet?

Offcourse. Whenever curtain wall sections are bent the price goes up by a lot! Because curtain wall sections (aluminium) comes in straight colums of 6m lenghts, its cheaper to build a rectangle.. But bending jacks the price up

with doka quoting lev156 as 601m, do you think this means they are now going with height above slab as official height?? thus by adding the 16m below ground level,the 819m height will equate to 835m?
This is where they should take height from anyway. its where the actual building starts.

No, I don't think they are. The reason that doka is quoting this height is because that is what is significant to them. Their forms built a 601 meter structure. To them, there was no difference between below ground and above ground. I think that is why the picture explicitly states that 601 is the core wall height.

maybe,. you would think they would add the 3 extra floors which are below grd, so it says 159 instead of 156. you cant have 601m while quoting lev156. have one or the other.

Does anybody think they may still go for over 1000 meters or is that plan history?
