If Fury says it's topped out, it will be topped out. He's the expert and now what's going on.

From these two images (the first one of which was annotated by Fury a couple of days ago, the second I took this afternoon), if Fury was correct then we must be topped out, the two halves of tier 23 are now in alignment

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

thank you OTR and and in the pic we can see the evidence of transition part of tier 23, we can see the difference with the complete wing

If there would be any doubts. On the picture you can clearly see that the cladding stops, so there isn't any cladding hidden anymore behind the steel floors.

Lol, the information BurjDubaiSkyscraper provides is very vast, ranging from 800-850 m, and 160-189 floors. Or maybe they planned all this and force us into this discussion?

So it MIGHT still go up for a while, but it won't be for long (one weeks I say), at least we can expect burj dubai will T/O within this month.

Even if you are right and it is toped out, its worthless info unless there is official announcement. I mean that if I cannot prove to a 3rd person that it reached the final height, what I can do it? And if there is none such, we still need to wait for days to be 100% sure there is no change on top. I hope tomorrow EMAAR will announce something.

I think it will take 4-5 days for Emaar to announce top out.

If this is the case, I won't admit top out until its fully cladded up to the spire and all the cranes are down to earth. Its fair and square.
