Unless we have an official announcement, we can argue pointless indefinitely. Especially with the height, none on this forum can confirm it.
This is EMAAR's fault. Its not like anything will surpass Burj in the near future to keep it secret. I'll wait for an official announcement never the less

^I'm with OTR. The cladding for Level 23 will be different to the cladding bolted on to the spire column that we see now, it will need to be wider.

Also, I'm fairly sure there will be some official notification when T/O finally occurs. Well... I really hope so!!!

[Edit] - doh, missed reading the last page... If Fury's diagram is correct, then it must be topped out! OMG!!! Finally, after all this time...

COME ON EMAAR YOU BASTARDS TELL US WHATS HAPPENING!!!!!

The red square I have drawn is where the hatch was yesterday, where from this point to where the hatch is now equates to 10m then the BD is topped out.

I think only about 4m height increase therfore 812m at moment.

@OTR
It is topped out, whether the previous calculation or the final hight was wrong, but it is definitely topped out for me. Everything is according to plan. We only have to redo the math. There is no real proven evidence for any further jacking, but lots of evidence for it to be topped out.

@ReiAyanami
There is no cladding inside, look at my previous pic, the wings directed to steel are transition parts with no cladding directed to the steel.

Assuming the door is man-sized (6ft, 1.8m?) then it's gone up 8-10m rather than 4m...
- For perspective, we know that the distance between white horizontal beams on the crane is 2m, and the top two seem to cover around half the distance jacked.
Come on Fury, wake up!!

I think they are referring to the Nakheel Harbour Tower. Once again the example of journalists not doing their job well.
