I wonder if there will be any warning signs on top about throwing coins from the tower... "please do not throw coins from the tower". Why the hell not? they will probably burn out on their way down

amazing photo

I have been watching it last couple of days, there has not been any movement from the top, (measuring last tier in comparison to the spire) still at 800m - maybe they are getting ready for the final jacking(s).!!! - cant wait :o

i guess they will leave the final jacking until the day of completion itself when they hit the final height and then celebrate .... i remember same thing happened when they built the petronas towers in malaysia ...

I strongly doubt that.

They would need to take the crane down to the cladding where it stands, and as far as I know, they need the crane to put up what's left of those small wings. For that, they need to jack it up at least one more stage.

The area must look stunning when the lake is filled up with water and the fountains are running. Beautiful pictures DBX
